  • Reserved Chicken and Andouille Sausage 
  • Reserved Roasted Vegetables 
  • Hot sauce, to taste 

INSTRUCTIONS:

FOR ROASTED VEGETABLES: 

  1. Combine yams, sweet potatoes, okra and vegetable oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.  
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Roast vegetables for 10-12 minutes, until browned and fully cooked.  
  3. Keep warm until ready to serve.  

FOR CHICKEN AND ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE: 

  1. Heat vegetable oil in medium sauté pan over medium heat for 5 minutes, until hot. Add sliced andouille sausage and cook for 5-6 minutes, until browned. Transfer to plate using slotted spoon.  
  2. Season chicken thighs with Cajun seasoning and add to sauté pan, scraping up any browned bits from the andouille sausage. Cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, until chicken thighs are fully cooked. Transfer to plate using slotted spoon.  
  3. Keep warm until ready to serve.  

FOR GUMBO:  

  1. Purée one can of cannellini beans in a blender or food processor; set aside.  
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, until hot. Add puréed beans and cook, stirring continuously for 15 minutes, until tan in color.  
  3. Add onions and sauté for 6 minutes, until translucent. Add bell pepper and celery and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, Cajun seasoning, gumbo filé, salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes.  
  4. Add 2 cups of vegetable stock and bring to a simmer. Slowly add collard greens, mustard greens, Swiss chard and kale, stirring to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes. Drain liquid from remaining can of cannellini beans. Add to skillet with remaining 2 cups of vegetable stock, spinach, watercress and parsley. Stir to combine. Add additional salt and pepper, as needed.  
  5. Ladle into bowls with rice. Top with reserved Chicken and Andouille Sausage and Roasted Vegetables. Add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce, to taste.  

FOR A PLANT-BASED OPTION: For a plant-based version of this recipe, omit the chicken and andouille sausage.  

Adding to the excitement, the recipe could also incorporate two special ingredients soon to be available at Walt Disney World Resort:

  • Mama Odie’s Hot Sauce: Add a sprinkle (or a dash, depending on your spice tolerance) of this magical hot sauce for a fiery kick.
  • Dooky Chase’s Gumbo Base: This authentic gumbo base, a staple of New Orleans cuisine, will be your secret weapon for creating a rich and flavorful roux.

Both Mama Odie’s Hot Sauce and Dooky Chase’s Gumbo Base will be available for purchase at the Main Street Confectionery and Critter Co-Op when Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens its doors at Walt Disney World Resort this summer, and later this year at Disneyland Park.

Now that your taste buds are tingling, get ready to whip up a pot of Tiana-worthy gumbo! (Remember, for a plant-based version, simply omit the chicken and andouille sausage.) Enjoy!
