The Princess and the Frog Tiana’s Gumbo Recipe

Continuing with our trend of sharing iconic recipes from and inspired by Disney films, we’re drawing focus to The Princess and the Frog, which is about Tiana, a waitress who turns into a frog after kissing a bewitched prince.

Tiana as a Waitress

In the movie, Tiana is a diner waitress working two jobs so that she can earn enough money to start a restaurant. She meets Prince Naveen at a ball that was giving her enough money to finally buy an old mill that she could convert into a restaurant, kisses him and transforms into a frog.  

Tiana’s Gumbo

As a little girl, Tiana and her father cook a big pot of gumbo – a Louisiana dish that is made with stock, meats, celery, bell peppers and onions. After she adds the final ingredient – a dash of Tabasco sauce, her father pronounces Tiana’s gumbo to be “the best he’s ever tasted”.

We have to admit that the gumbo does look pretty tempting, doesn’t it? So, we’ve put together a recipe for gumbo inspired by The Princess of the Frog. Enjoy it with some rice or bread for lunch or dinner.
