The OKRA Challenge

Ok people, listen up!  I have way too much okra and I'm not sure how much more I can take.  I need a good recipe.  Should use at least 1/2 lb. okra. Something healthy, preferably without the use of much oil(or butter, etc.). No deep frying, please.  And no cheese please (unless it's just a light sprinkling on top).  Ok, so I'm picky.....sorry. And of course, it must be vegetarian. :)

Here's the deal.  You come up with a great okra recipe for me and if I  pick your recipe to make (I'll blog it and put your name on it), I'll send you a copy of my recently released Bach CD.  I know, I know......who wants a classical CD????  Well, if you do, email me your recipe!  Just go to my website, click on "violist" or "photos"  and then click "email me" to send me your recipe. So if I get at least 3 recipes, the deal is on!

And so today I roasted my usual vegetables, but I added about 7 large okra to it (I had to use it somehow!).  Still a hair slimy....but it was ok.  I added Creole Seasoning to it to spice it up Cajun style.

Stay tuned for tonight's dinner: Mayan Bowl with Enchilada Sauce
Going to see Michael Moore's new movie......might be a late dinner.

Don't forget to vote in my diet poll!!

Eat smart,


  1. No recipe, I add okra to lots of dishes, but I freeze my over abundance. I chop it into 1/4 inch coins, put them in a gallon freezer bag and dust with enough four to cover the stickiness. After they're frozen it doesn't take much to break them apart to add to various dishes.

  2. Thanks! I may have to freeze it if I don't get any recipes :)

  3. I've never eaten okra (to be honest, I've only seen it once where I live and I didn't know what it was back then). Ricki has some yummy sounding recipes though:

  4. Thanks Vegetation.....will check those out!
