Oven Baked Roux Mardi Gras Gumbo (Gluten Free)

Gluten Free Gumbo

Alton Brown’s oven baked roux technique is used here to reinvent my gumbo recipe.  This culinary genius has solved the problem that happens too often in making a gumbo – just when you think the roux is done enough, it goes from perfect to burnt in just seconds. But in the oven, the roux turns out perfectly medium brown.

I will be making this gumbo on Fat Tuesday (aka Mardi Gras) in a few days, and then I will think = Why don’t I make this more often? It is a flavorful bowl of goodness with just a little heat kick. Perfect for kicking the winter blahs!
