I have made this several times and it is always great. The recipe is very easy. It tastes even better when you add seafood. I love it!

We made this recipe with all-purpose gluten free flour and water with corresponding bouillon. The gluten free flour made it way too thick so I added 4 more cups of water and it turned out amazing! It reheats great too. Topped it off with a scoop of rice,perfect!

I agree - nice and easy to make, though time consuming. Its hard with 2 toddlers in the house to dedicate 25 minutes solid to making a roux, but totally worth it. I also found that it freezes surprisingly well. So I made extra and froze to take as lunches to work. Divine.
