METHOD

1
Prepare your mise en place: Peel and dice onion. Dice celery. Dice pepper. Peel and mince garlic. Remove husk and silk from corn. Place base flat on cutting board, run the knife down the ear to cut kernels away from cob. Thinly slice okra. Thinly slice green onions.
2
Place a large saucepot on medium heat, and add butter. When butter has melted, add flour and whisk until incorporated. Cook until flour smells nutty and toasted, 2-3 minutes. This is your roux.
3
Add Cajun Seasoning, onion, celery, pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring continuously, until onion is translucent, 4-5 minutes.
4
Stir in tomato paste and cook 1-2 minutes, then stir in 3 cups water and Bragg Liquid Aminos. Slowly bring this mixture to a simmer. Add bean and corn. Cook 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally and scraping bottom of pot to prevent scorching.
5
While gumbo is simmering, prepare rice: In a small saucepan with a lid, combine rice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 1/2 cup water. Place pot on high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover pot, and cook until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, about 12 minutes.
6
When rice is nearly finished cooking, add okra to gumbo. Cook until okra is tender, 3-4 minutes. Remove gumbo from heat, taste and adjust seasoning as desired with freshly ground pepper and salt.
7
Fluff rice with a fork. Divide rice between 2 plates or pasta bowls. Spoon gumbo over rice, and top with green onion. Enjoy!
