Add the okra and chicken with the Cajun spice mix, and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring, until the spices are fragrant Add the passata and 2 jarfuls of water. Crumble in the stock cubes, add the bay leaves, then bring everything to a simmer. Season and cook for 25-30 minutes. stirring frequently, until the sauce has reduced to the consistency of thick soup
2 Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the pack instructions. then drain and keep warm. When the gumbo has thickened, add the prawns, and gently simmer for 2-3 minutes until they turn completely pink. Add the lemon juice to taste. check the seasoning and scatter with the spring onions.
Divide the gumbo between 4 bowls and top each with a large spoonful of rice – or let everyone dish up their own bowls.
COOK’S NOTE if you can’t find okra, you can :substitute it with courgettes chopped into small chunks – you’ll only need 1 jarful of water and 1 chicken stock cube instead of 2 as the okra thickens the sauce a lot.
