Friday is : Gluten-free Chicken gumbo called,”Almost Famous”…..lot of veggies even okra , rice & chicken……Friday is the only day I cook a meaty soup! So make it in all you meaty lovers :)!
This is a green, smooth beauty with a chunky garnish. Be sure to go light on the salt as the kalamala olives (or bacon) add a salty flavor. Great with Panini or fresh salad. Fast & easy.
