Ingredients

2
shallots, finely chopped
3
garlic cloves, finely chopped
4
links spanish chorizo or 8 oz., sliced into coins
3/4 box
chicken broth
2
bay leaves
1
12 oz jar of roasted red peppers, sliced into thin strips
1/2 c
good red wine like pinot noir
2 can(s)
great northern beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
flour
1 lb
31-40 count shrimp, peeled & deveined
1 Tbsp
freshly ground pepper
1/4 c
fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 pkg
chopped frozen spinach

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large dutch oven, heat and brown Chorizo without oil. After about 3 minutes, add the chopped shallots and garlic, cook until tender about 2 minutes.
Add chicken broth, wine, roasted peppers, beans, ground pepper and bay leaves. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
2
While the gumbo simmers, make the rue. In a small frying pan, melt the butter. Once all butter is melted and bubbling, add the flour and stir until all flour is incorporated. Cook the rue until it turns to a nutty-brown color. Remove from heat and add into the gumbo. Stir the gumbo as you pour in the rue.
3
Add the frozen chopped spinach and simmer another 10-15 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook and simmer for another 7-10 minutes. Taste for preferred saltiness; Chorizo and chicken broth may provide enough salt. Stir in and garnish with chopped parsley.
