Chicken Gumbo Soup Recipe

With all of these COLD snow days, I wanted to share one of our favorite soup recipes.  My mother-in-law created this recipe.  It’s very forgiving.  You can use leftover chicken and vegetables, making it different every time.  Enjoy!

3 T dairy-free margarine
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
4 c chicken broth (dairy-free)
1 - 16 oz. can italian-style diced tomatoes
1 - 12.5 oz. can chicken chunks
1 - 4 oz. package little smoked sausages (double check dairy-content)
1 c frozen corn
2 c veggie chunks (mixed veggies, celery, zucchini, okra, summer squash, etc.)
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. oregano leaves
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. Grillmates Montreal Steak Seasoning (or a dash of liquid smoke, pepper, garlic, and paprika)
3 c rice, cooked

Saute onion and green pepper in dairy-free margarine.  Set aside.  Cut up little sausages and cook until brown.  Combine all of the ingredients (except for the rice) into a large sauce pan and simmer until vegetables are tender (about 25-30 minutes).  Scoop 1/2 c rice into a soup bowl and ladle soup on top.  Enjoy!
