This is an easy Gumbo. You can put it together in less than 30 minutes and let it simmer for 3o minutes. It is better the next day. The flavors have time to develop and the zucchini can thicken the gumbo. That’s right! The squash is a substitute for okra which is usually used in most gumbos. It is hard to find fresh okra in the winter so the zucchini is perfect. For me this soup ranks right up there with this and also with this. It has been a favorite for years while the other two are new kids on the block.
Pair this with cooked rice and crunchy buttered toast and you will satisfy any hunger.
