This vegan gumbo soup recipe makes a very thick, rich and hearty soup. Okra, as well as its flavorful spiced base, is the superstar and most characteristic part of Gumbo soup. The word gumbo itself comes from an African word for okra.  While gumbo soups are generally meat or seafood filled, this plant empowered version gets its wonderful thick and hearty texture from the addition of beans, mushrooms and, of course, loads of vegetables. Lots of herbs, spices and a little smoke seasoning gives it it’s deep full flavor. This was a huge hit at our home. We all loved it and I hope that you do too!  || Read more
