Okra is my favorite vegetable.
OH I love it.
I wish I would just grow some in my back yard. They NEVER have it at our local grocery store and I can get it at the farmer's market but I'm not great at getting there on Saturday mornings.
One of my favorite things is Pickled Okra. I feel like a good salad is never complete without some. :-)
Here are a few ways I like okra.
I love this as a side dish. It's so good and not as bad as Fried Okra (the best way to eat okra):
(Some times I make a simple version of this and just pan cook okra with a can of diced tomatoes and some Zatarain seasoning. Delicious and low fat)
And of course one thing I love more than anything is a good Gumbo with okra.
And my friend Hillary's mom makes a Fried Cornbread Salad that I'm DYING to make some day soon! Like maybe this weekend - anyone want to come to dinner?
And have you ever been to Fresh Market or Whole Foods and bought Okra Chips????? They are SOOOOOO good but the price is ridiculous. I just found this recipe. I haven't tried it yet but I'm planning on it soon - you might want to try this out if you like these like I do.
Anyone have a good Okra recipe you want to share???????
