Smoky Red Bean and Pepper Gumbo
This is a dish we've made before and will definitely continue to make in the future. It's just so good. This gumbo is from Veganomicon. It's got lots of tomatoes and bell peppers in it (5 bell peppers!). It also has beer in it; it always makes me feel badass to cook with beer. The smokiness is due to roasting the red bells and tomatoes, and a bit of liquid smoke. It's got a nice, thick, stick to your ribs texture thanks to chopped okra.
I serve this over a small pile of white rice. Luckily we had a couple extra people over to help us eat this. We still ended up with a lot left over though. I think that cornbread would also taste great with this.
