Tiana’s Dad’s Gumbo
Gumbo to share with the whole neighborhood!
The Tabasco really adds a great kick! Tiana and her dad can really make some great gumbo. Here’s a recipe for some of the best gumbo I’ve had, coming straight from the Princess and the Frog cookbook.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 ribs celery
- 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 bay leaves
- 2 quarts water
- 1 lb shrimp
- 1 lb andouille sausage
- 1 lb okra
- 20oz diced tomatoes (half drained)
- Cajun spices
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Tabasco (to taste)
- Rice (to serve on)
- Cook sausage in some oil until browned.
- Remove the sausage and add onion and garlic, cook until caramelized
- In a large pot, add 1lb butter until it melts.
- Add 1 cup flour and make a roux
- Add in onions and garlic, then celery, ocra, salt, pepper, and cajun spices. Mix and let sizzle for a couple minutes.
- Add water and diced tomatoes
- Add bay leaves.
- Bring to boil
- Turn heat down to a medium or medium low to simmer
- Add the sausages, cover and cook for 30 minutes
- Add the shrimp, cover and cook for 15 more minutes.
- Serve over rice!
At the restaurant and at the party, Tiana serves some amazing beignets.
I love beignets ever since we visited New Orleans and had beignets at the Cafe du Monde. These weren’t as good as the ones at Cafe du Monde, but they were really good, coming straight from the Princess and the Frog cookbook
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
- In a medium bowl, combine 2 3/4 cups of the flour with the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk everything together.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, water, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture from Step 1.
- Use some of the remaining flour to dust your work surface. Place the dough on it and pat it into a large 1/2 -inch-thick square. Dust the top with more flour if it gets sticky. Next, slice the dough into 2 1/2 -inch squares.
- Now it’s time to fry the beignets—be sure to ask an adult to help you! Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy saucepan on the stove top until the temperature reaches 325° on a deep fat thermometer. Check the temperature with a cooking thermometer every so often while cooking. If it gets too hot, temporarily turn the heat down, or off.
- Carefully drop 3 dough squares at a time into the hot oil. Fry them for 3 minutes, turn them over, and continue frying for 3 more minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the beignets to a wire rack set atop paper towels to drain. Dust the beignets with confectioners’ sugar, and enjoy!
Part of the food Tiana serves at the diner, was flapjacks.
I made some homemade pancakes that were LITERALLY the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter.
- Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
- You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it's ready!
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or fork to blend.
- Stir until it's just blended together. Do not over stir!
- Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake.
- Brown on both sides and serve hot.
This is shown in Tiana’s song when she’s dreaming about her own restaurant.
