Impossible™ Gumbo by Chef Darius Williams

Mar 05, 2021

Gumbo is one of those delightful American dishes that is wildly flexible and open to thousands of different interpretations depending on your region or even within your own family. Here, we’re sharing chef Darius Williams’ version that features Impossible™ Burger.

Gumbo is a Louisiana speciality, traditionally made with meat or shellfish, so a version featuring Impossible Burger is ideal for a gumbo. Gumbo is a soup in three parts. First, the muscular stock that is loaded with flavor. Next comes the meat -- pork, shellfish, chicken are typically used, so here you’ll be using Impossible Burger. And finally the “holy trinity of gumbo”: celery, red bell peppers and onions.

It’s a complex soup with a complex history, with a lineage from African, French, Spanish and Choctaw cooking. While not necessary, we recommend serving it topped with rice or on a bed of rice.

We’re Impossible Foods, and we make plant based meat. Our mission is to make the global food system truly sustainable by eliminating the need to make food from animals. It’s all delicious, nutritious, and made using a small fraction of the land, water, and energy that animal meat uses so people can keep eating the foods they love, without harming the planet they love.
