  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 teaspoon Danwood Smoky Powder®

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 quart vegetable stock or broth

  • 4 cups sliced okra

INSTRUCTIONS :

  • Place Danwood Smoked Oil® and flour in a Dutch Oven with a heavy bottom.

  • Turn the heat on medium and whisk continuously until mixture becomes fragrant. This should take about 5 minutes.

  • Turn heat to low or medium-low depending on the size and heat your burner gives off.

  • Continue to whisk continuously (it's alright to stop for a few seconds here and there, but not for any length of time) until roux becomes a dark caramel color, like the color of an old penny. This could take 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Remove Dutch oven from heat.

  • In a food processor, process tomato, onion, garlic, vegan worcestershire sauce, mustard, Danwood Liquid Smoke®, Danwood Smoky Vinegar®, hot sauce, soy sauce, thyme, red pepper flakes, Danwood Smoky Powder®, paprika, nutmeg, and oregano until mixture is smooth.

  • Place Dutch oven with roux over medium-high heat and add tomato/onion puree.

  • Stir to mix together. Continue to cook until most of liquid has evaporated.

  • Add vegetable stock and stir. Bring to a simmer.

  • Add beans, mushrooms, zucchini, green and red pepper, and celery and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Serve with rice and green onions.
