I know you have all been dying for this recipe since I posted a sneak peak a few weeks ago on Instagram.

I’ve got a bunch of healthy dinner recipes coming your way this fall, so you can sit back and kick off your shoes because dinner is about to get really easy!


Now you can enjoy this Gluten-Free & Vegan Chickpea Gumbo all to yourself instead of living vicariously through my Instagram images!

It’s perfect for dinner and fabulous for lunch leftovers the next day, too.


I made this dish over the summer but I’ll certainly be making it again and again throughout the fall and winter because it’s such a hearty dish that can warm you up on a chilly day or any day, for that matter.


The best part of this gumbo is that it literally melts in your mouth and it’s pretty impossible to not want to make it again and again and again. Trust me. Try it once…you’ll see what I mean.


It’s not hard to finish the whole pot in one sitting. And it goes great on top of quinoa or brown rice, too.

Just a little food for thought.


Get your spoons ready, folks…this one is another keeper.

  15. I thought for the longest time that I hated okra. I was wrong. And this gumbo needs to be made very soon. What would you reccommend as an accompanyment? When I make chili, my husband always looks for cornbread or corn muffins. I’m just not sure what I could make with a gumbo since I’ve never made it.

    1. Thank you so much!! Great to hear from you. Cornbread or Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread pairs well with this meal! Enjoy. Xxoo
