Asian Meets Cajun Gumbo



  1. Heat oil in a heavy, large pot; add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are tender.
  2. Mix flours together with 2 cups stock. Gradually stir flour mixture into onion mixture until a smooth thin paste forms.
  3. Add soybeans, okra, tomatoes, green pepper, seasonings and remaining stock. Bring mixture to boil; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp and simmer 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  5. Ladle 12 to 16 ounces over rice.
  6. Cooking method for soybeans: Add 1 pound dry soybeans to 1 1/2 to 2 quarts boiling water; boil 5 minutes.
  7. Cover pot, remove from heat and let stand 1 hour.
  8. 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.
