We’re getting close to the summer opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Magic Kingdom Park, and later this year at Disneyland park. To celebrate, the culinary team from Tiana’s Palace at Disneyland park shared a recipe with us for 7 Greens Gumbo with Chicken & Andouille Sausage. I had the chance to test this unique (and delicious) recipe at home!

Roasted vegetables, seasoned chicken, andouille sausage and cannellini beans come together with seven different greens to create a hearty and flavorful dish. If you want the 7 Greens Gumbo to be a plant-based dish, it can easily be served without the chicken and andouille sausage.

All this talk about gumbo is making me hungry, so it’s time to share the recipe with you. Let’s get to it!

  1. Keep warm until ready to serve.


  1. Purée one can of cannellini beans in a blender or food processor; set aside.

Add additional salt and pepper, as needed.
  1. Ladle into bowls with rice. Top with reserved Chicken and Andouille Sausage and Roasted Vegetables. Add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce, to taste.

Cook’s Note: For a plant-based version of this recipe, omit the chicken and andouille sausage. 

Always use caution when handling sharp objects and hot contents.

Please supervise children who are helping or nearby.

This recipe has been converted from a larger quantity in the restaurant kitchens.

The flavor profile may vary from the restaurant’s version.

If you like a little extra kick in your gumbo, try a few dashes of Mama Odie’s Hot Sauce; it’s the bee’s knees!

And for a special treat, Dooky Chase’s Gumbo Base can be used in place of the gumbo filé. If Dooky Chase’s Restaurant sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the restaurant that was owned and operated by the legendary chef Leah Chase! Her story was one of the inspirations for the character of Princess Tiana in Walt Disney Animation Studios “The Princess and the Frog,” and later in the development of the upcoming attraction by Walt Disney Imagineering — Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

You can find Mama Odie’s Hot Sauce and assorted Dooky Chase’s Seasonings this summer at Main Street Confectionery and Critter Co-Op when Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens at Walt Disney World Resort this summer and later this year at Disneyland park. We’re excited this will be the first time guests can buy Dooky Chase’s Gumbo Base, Seafood Seasoning, Meat Seasoning and Fried Chicken Seasoning outside of Dooky Chase’s Restaurant!
