Traditionally, gumbo starts with a roux (how dark it is varies. I like it golden brown), then you add onion, peppers, celery, okra, tomatoes and spices, then the protein and you eat it over rice, and sprinkle a bit of gumbo file on top. You can make it thick without the roux if you saute the okra in butter until it turns to mush before you add anything else.

I'd love to see the recipe. Can you post a link?
