Filé


Filé

Filé consists of dried and ground sassafras leaves, generally made into filé powder, and may be sprinkled (very sparingly) over the rice and gumbo by the individual in the serving bowl, never in the pot. Originally filé was used as a substitute thickening agent when okra was not in season, a practice borrowed from the Choctaw Indians. Its use as such is not particularly common anymore. Instead, filé may be added to a roux-based gumbo at the table. Not all present-day recipes for filé use sassafras leaves, for health reasons: see the filé powder article for details.
