Veggie Gumbo: Vegan

I got this recipe from a vegetarian cook book I have. Everyone needs a solid veg cookbook in my opinion.

Veggie Gumbo: Vegan
¼ c. brown rice
2 tsp Coconut oil
½ c. chopped onion
2 garlic cloves
4 c. veggie broth
28 oz. jar or can diced tomatoes
10 oz. frozen okra (or 2 c. fresh sliced!)
2 bay leaves
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 c. kale
½ c. frozen corn

Cook brown rice according to package instructions.
In sauce pan, heat oil at med-high temp. Add onions and garlic, sauté 3 minutes. Add stock, tomatoes, okra, bay leaves and spices. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes before adding kale, brown rice and corn. Cook for 2 additional minutes (or a bit longer for the flavors to ‘marry’).
I sometimes prefer to make soup the day before and put it in the refrige over night because all the flavors have time to mesh and it’s AMAZING the next day!
