Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with Okra
Okra is a flowering plant that is native to West Africa and consumed as a vegetable all around the world. It was brought to the United States during the slave trade and is very popular in the South. Okra is often used in gumbo, as in this recipe that your child will learn how to make. Your child will also practice using measurements along the way. This version uses Andouille sausage and tender pieces of chicken in a flavorful but mild broth that can be easily intensified with spices, your child’s palette permitting.
