Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Asian Cajun Gumbo

It's summer and often we have more vegetables than we know what to do with -- and so I decided to take the odd peppers and onions and okra and tomatoes and a bit of leftover corn and make gumbo.
And since this was "leftover" soup, I found a package of grilled chicken breasts in the fridge which we had not eaten yet. But not just grilled breasts but ones that had been marinated first in a spicy ginger teriyaki sauce before they were grilled.

An accidental soup, made from leftovers, became our favorite gumbo. We made it again and started first by marinated chicken breasts in the spicy ginger teriyaki sauce before they were grilled and placed in the gumbo -- this gumbo made entirely of vegetables bought FOR the gumbo!
A favorite way to serve a first course soup for two (or even four) is in our individual charlotte molds -- the metal keeps the soup hot and it truly is a perfect size for a first course.

Sometimes something made on the fly turns out to be something really good. I must admit that our gumbo is like no other -- the secret is in the spicy Asian chicken!

That made me smile! I recently made a chicken dish for which I had few of the ingredients called for. A week later I made the same dish, with all the proper ingredients........of course we liked the 'adaptation' better!

Looks delish to me. Oftentimes the ability to experiment and think outside the box turns out to be the best.

I love your individual charlotte molds. We eat with our eyes first and this gumbo looks so appetizing.

How clever to use the Charlotte molds for soup. Very chic.
Love gumbo - makes me miss Louisiana.

This looks wonderful to me. It's good to find another way to use the Charlotte molds. I never thought of it until I read it here.

Looks delicious! And I can't believe I just found yet another Martha! I have 3 other blogging friends name Martha, just discovered Mid-Atlantic Martha and found you in her comment section. There are more of us around than I thought! :-)
