Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Okra Gumbo

We've had a surplus of okra growing in our garden this summer, so I've had to come up with several new recipes for okra since curried okra (my favorite) is starting to get "boring" around here.  I was so happy to find several great recipes including this one on the Fat Free Vegan Blog.  Of course Susan's photos are way nicer than mine...but hey, it looks pretty similar doesn't it? 

This dish would be great to serve to a hardcore southern crowd along with some vegan cornbread and sweet tea!  You definitely need to get the "Liquid Smoke" to acheive the smokey flavor that makes it taste like real cajun gumbo.  I found a bottle at Whole Foods for under $3.00.
