Savory, spicy tempeh sausage graces this rich and delicious vegan version of gumbo. This vegan gumbo is flavored with a delicious mix of spices, lots of veggies as well as a homemade spicy vegan sausage and my famous sunburgers.
The spiciness of this dish can easily be adjusted according to your personal taste. My family cannot even handle the spiciness of a garlic clove so I made this dish without the hot sauce, chili flakes and cayenne for them and then I added the spice for me. You can give it just a little kick or you can pour on the hot sauce, however you like your gumbo! This gumbo has a lovely flavor without the spice if you have a sensitive mouth like my family.
I must admit, I have NEVER tasted gumbo before in my life!
So you'll have to forgive me if it does not have the authentic flavor you are used to. I researched a lot of gumbo recipes and I must admit there is a WIDE variation in ingredients. Some used canned tomatoes and tomato paste, some didn't use any tomatoes! It was hard to create a genuine recipe with such a wide variation among recipes so I tried to come up with the best of all recipes in my version.
My husband had quite a few cankers when I made this recipe and that is the reason I did not use any tomatoes because they sting his mouth when he has cankers. If you want to add a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies to this recipe I think it would add an excellent flavor! Play with the recipe and see what you like.
My family LOVED this recipe! Even my kids really enjoyed this recipe. It has a delicious, subtle flavor and then you add the amount of kick you like, it is so easy to make.
