Really easy and tasty. I usually use an entire 1 lb. package of okra (we love okra and fixed this way it's not gummy) and increase the onion and other seasonings. I serve it over grits (though my grits are more like polenta that what I think of as grits). Read More

Yummy! I wasn't sure about this recipe when I saw it but I had all of the ingredients already so figured I'd give it a whirl. I added some petite green beans and an extra clove of garlic and put over organic brown rice. It turned out GREAT!!! Hubby liked it too and we have NEVER eaten okra in this house. Would make again and definitely recommend! Read More
