Accessories you need



This recipe is inspired by dishes I ate in New Orleans and is my own recipe for
potato gumbo - gumbo's are typically made with shrimp. I make this dish for adults
too - this recipe will make 4 adult side portions and it is great served with steak,
chicken or white fish. I usually add a good dash of cajun spices to the adult version
to make it taste more authentic. This recipe is how I would make it for my toddler
although I occasionally add in some diced chicken for extra protein, she just loves it.
