Ever Make Gumbo Without Rue?

My Mamaw used to make seafood gumbo without making a rue. It was amazing and tasted like regular gumbo. I'm not quite sure how she did it, but I'm getting the recipe from my mom and am trying it this weekend, I think. Anyone ever do this? Anyone ever heard of doing it this way?

I've browned the flour in the oven and made it without oil. Tastes OK but I like it better with oil (I still brown thew flour in the oven).

I look forward to seeing the recipe you're getting. My wife is a celiac and can't have the regular flour. We can make it with a roux using other flours but it always comes out very light but does still taste good. We tried without roux at all and it didn't come out well.

Filet Gumbo can be made without a roux I believe.

No gumbo police enforcing gumbo laws, at least that I know of. But, as stated many times on this board, Bozo's has an excellent roux-less gumbo.

However, we do have grammar/spelling police, 'rue' means street in French, to regret in English. Roux is a fat & flour mixture.

yeah, but when was the last time you tried making gumbo with pavement as an ingredient?

Okay, I'll take my medicine. Roux. I knew I was spelling it wrong when I wrote it. I thought, "That's how you spell street in French" because of the street signs in the French Quarter. Total brain freeze. Sorry.

I'm actually 5th generation native of New Orleans and it is clear I've lived in Alabama too long.

I asked my mother last night how could you make a gumbo without ROUX and she said that my Mamaw used a lot of okra. I remember it having the dark color and thickness of okra, but I haven't eaten it since I was a kid, so I'm a little skeptical myself. I remember it being good though. If I try it, I'll post the recipe.

Ahh so that explains why nobody in your family knows how to cook a Gumbo they are all from New Orleans.

How do you get a dark brown gumbo without a roux? Assuming no kitchen bouquet is used.

Myself. No tomatoes. I wouldn't ever do that.

I grew up around New Orleans and never put tomatoes in gumbo. Think that is a Baton Rouge myth. They have to knock NOLA for something.
