Instructions for Asian Meets Cajun Gumbo

Heat oil in a heavy, large pot; add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are tender.

Mix flours together with 2 cups stock. Gradually stir flour mixture into onion mixture until a smooth thin paste forms.

Add soybeans, okra, tomatoes, green pepper, seasonings and remaining stock. Bring mixture to boil; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Add shrimp and simmer 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Ladle 12 to 16 ounces over rice.

*Cooking method for soybeans:

Add 1 pound dry soybeans to 1-1/2 to 2 quarts boiling water; boil 5 minutes.

Cover pot, remove from heat and let stand 1 hour.

Drain; add 1-1/2 quarts water. Do not add salt at this point or it will delay the softening of the beans.

Bring beans and water to boil; reduce heat and simmer, with lid tilted on pot, about 3 hours or until beans are tender.

Yield: 1 to 1-1/2 quarts cooked beans.
