Are you making this? 
1 Celery rib; diced
1/2 c Okra, cut
1 c cabbage; Shredded (optional)
6 ts Vegetable Bouillon granules
4 Tomatoes, fresh
1/4 c Rice, white or brown
12 c Water
1/2 c Corn, fresh
1 Onion; diced
1/8 ts Tabasco Sauce; (optional)

Original recipe makes 12



Directions: Place all ingredients in a large pot, bring to boil, cover and simmer about 20 minutes until all vegetables are done. 1-l/2 C serving equals about 35 calories. NOTE: I use Uncle Bens Converted Rice as it seems to hold its shape better in long cooking periods. Any rice will work if this soup is not reheated several times, but it usually is! This is a thin soup, I sometimes add shredded cabbage, chard, bok choy, or other green vegetable to it. The greens make it thicker and more filling, but add few calories. This doesnt resemble the real Cajun Gumbo, but is good for those days when you feel youve over-indulged and need to cut back. I keep in it the fridge and use it as a snack when I just have to have something else. You can also add herbs, hot pepper, it is very versatile, and a good starting recipe. Original, from Files of A.
