I just had some great gumbo ya-ya at Mr. B's, as well as some amazing seafood gumbo at Commander's Palace. I noticed that there were almost NO diced vegitables in either dish. My fiance had a few stray pieces of onions at Mr. B's, but other than that, nothing!
I've never noticed this, until lately I've started to cook gumbo myself. Is it possible they puree the vegetables and broth before adding the "protein"?
It's not mentioned in either Commander's cookbook or Mr. B's gumbo yaya recipe. I'm utterly baffled!!
