Sausage and Chicken Gumbo

This recipe, adapted from one published in Cooking Light, was very disappointing!  It really lacked any flavor at all. We added quite a bit of Cajun seasoning to liven it up and that really helped. 

1 cup rice, uncooked
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 cup frozen chopped onion
1 cup frozen chopped green red bell pepper
1 cup frozen cut okra
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 - 1 TBS Cajun Seasoning (key to making this a flavorful dish)
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breasts
8 ounces turkey kielbasa, cut into half moons
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with peppers and onion
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth 

Cook rice according to package directions. While rice cooks, combine flour and oil in a Dutch oven; saute over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Add onion and next 6 ingredients (onion through Cajun seasoning); cook 3 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in chicken, kielbasa, tomatoes, and broth; cook 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.
