"This dish is like all my favorite Cajun dishes in one! I’m not 100% sure exactly which spices are included in the seasoning packet of the Hurst’s Cajun 15-Bean Soup mix but whatever they are, they are PERFECT for this gumbo."

Ingredients

  • 1 20-oz. bag Hurst’s Cajun 15 Bean Soup mix
  • 7 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 14.5-oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1.5 lbs. smoked sausage or andouille, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1.5 lbs. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Cooking Directions

  1. Combine beans (WITHOUT seasoning packet), water and bay leaf in a large pot or dutch oven then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover then cook for 4 hours or until beans are tender. Set seasoning packet aside to use later.
  2. In a separate skillet, sauté celery, bell pepper and onion until veggies are tender (about 8-10 minutes). Add sautéed veggies, seasoning packet from beans, thyme, pepper, garlic powder, tomatoes (with juice) and sausage to beans, cover pot, then continue cooking for one hour.
  3. Add shrimp then gently stir to combine. Cover pot and let cook for 5 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through. Do not overcook shrimp. Remove from heat and keep covered until ready to serve.
  4. Serve with rice if desired.

Cooking Tips

  • Serve with rice if desired.
  • You can absolutely add okra to this if you’d like. Add it when you add the Holy Trinity. If you want to add okra to this, you know that that means 😉 If you want to add okra, you’ll need to add a little extra water since the okra will thicken things up a bit and this gumbo is already pretty thick.
  • The same is true for filé powder. If gumbo just isn’t gumbo for you without a little filé, go ahead and add some but add a little extra water because it will also thicken things up.
  • Yes, you can cook this in a crock pot! Cook the same way replacing the first 4 hours on the stove with 5-6 hours on high in the crock pot.
  • If you can’t find Hurst's Cajun 15 Bean Soup mix in your market, please ask your grocer for them. Until then, you can order them online.
