Jambalaya (On The Bayou) File Gumbo Recipe

A while ago, we shared a recipe for Jambalya, inspired by the song Jambalya (On The Bayou). The song chronicles how the singer is going for a party with his girlfriend and the food that they’re going to have.

He mentioned Jambalya – which you can find for the recipe for here, crawfish pie and file gumbo.

File Gumbo

File Gumbo is a quintessential New Orleans dish, made by adding file powder – made by grinding leaves from the North American sassafras tree – to a bowl of gumbo. Gumbo is a stew made with a strongly flavored stock, meat or shellfish and celery, bell peppers and onions.

Try your hand at this file gumbo for lunch or dinner; serve it with a side of mashed potatoes or over wild rice.
