Fresh okra is delicious when simmered with tomatoes in this Creole-inspired vegan side dish. Use more cayenne if you like it spicy.
Altered ingredient amounts. For folks who think or have read that okra is too slimey to enjoy- try this recipe! I found this recipe delicious, a snap to make, and it's really healthy. I used a tin of real Italian cherry tomatoes, fresh thyme, and added a bit more garlic, and it was wonderful. Okra-phobes, you won't regret trying this! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Mmmmm! Really good! This was my first time making okra (and second time eating it...first experience wasn't too great) and it was really yummy! We like lots of garlic so I doubled it and ended up adding the entire can of tomatoes. Delicious - 29 Sep 2008
Definitely my favourite way to have okra. Even my kids enjoyed this recipe, (I was afraid it might be too spicy). I mixed the leftovers in a gumbo soup I made with it and served them together which worked well too. Yum! - 29 Sep 2008
