We understand that maintaining a keto diet can be challenging, especially when trying to balance the right nutrients, fats, and proteins. Our team in the Lazy Keto App has carefully structured this flavorful Gumbo recipe to satisfy all these requirements. The combination of boneless chicken thighs and andouille sausages in this recipe provides a high-quality protein source while the olive oil and tomato paste contribute a well-balanced amount of good fats. Besides, this dish is a low-carb comfort food masterpiece as its carbohydrate source comes from fiber-rich vegetables such as okra, bell peppers, and cauliflower in lieu of traditional rice.

It hits all the right notes; spicy, savory, rich, and hearty. The slightly thick texture yielded from the okra in this recipe pairs excellently with the tender chicken and zesty sausage, further enhanced by the backdrop of aromatic herbs and spices. Whether you are following a strict keto routine or simply looking for a scrumptious, balanced meal, this mouthwatering gumbo, filled to the brim with goodness, is an absolute must-try!
