True the flavor is from the roux. Lent is a Catholic observation and therefore those of us who aren't Catholic know very little of it. It seems less popular, gunbo z'herbes or green gumbo, to those of us who don't observe Catholic traditions. Of course maybe its cause I wasn't born here so therefore not a "local" but I really think its more of the fact that i am not catholic nor was I raised catholic and don't observe lent so I don't look for or notice foods that I would normally eat with meat in vegie form. I don't hear of them nor have I ever until I wiki'd it. This friday ill be sure to eat a big juicy hamburger for all the catholics out there lol. I'm prolly going to hell, or maybe purgatory since I was raised at least protestant, because of it, and the fact that I didn't get ashes smeared on my head last wednesday. But I apologize because I don't want to turn this into a religious flame war thread.So what have we found? That you could possibly find a vegie form of gumbo somewhere or at least a recipe. Oh and non-catholics do exist! (Lol my last girl friend didn't know what a protestant was due to her hegemonic catholic upbringing)

What a variety of comments. Great smiles and laughter. Southern food is what it is and to change it to satisfy a "no meat" lifestyle will no doubtably lessen your experience, however it can be done at home. I've not found many restaurants that have adapted to easily changing their menu items, so let us all know what you discover. Good luck and happy eats !!!

You know, Popeye's actually has really good RBR and it doesn't have seafood or meat in it, not pieces of them anyway.

The thing about gumbo is it cooks slowly to absorb the flavors of the seafood or meat. For seafood gumbo, groceries sell "gumbo crabs" which are crab shells with the meat removed (sold as lump crabmeat). You add those to help flavor the gumbo. So a meatless gumbo, IMO, would be pointless. Although I lived there most of my life, I never bothered with green gumbo.
