I've mentioned this vegetable in the forum before, but I can't get enough of it!

My week 3 choice is...:
Okra!!!:happy:

Calorically sparse, filled with almost every vitamin, ample supply of protein, fibrous and TASTY!!! Stick a casserole in the oven and cook it in a spicy olive-oil/tomato sauce with chicken or beef, and I gurantee you won't stop at one serving! (This BTW is the only way I eat it-I'm eager to find out your recipes!)

Here's the profile of the food...

Enjoy!

Alex,

The only way I've ever really ate okra is breaded and fried. Those trans fatty acids made my taste-buds tingle!

Alexander, could you give that recipe with a little more detail? (Kitchen impaired here) (Except the eating part)

Brian, sure I'll give you my recipe-or would the forum members prefer I do it...privately???We wouldn't want our resident okra-dissidents quietly benefiting from our super-secret squirell recipes-now would we??!:biggrin:

Aright, Alexander, if you want anyone to even begin to believe that okra is not completely gross (except of course when breaded and deep-fried as Jay so correctly points out--but really what isn't edible when prepared thus?), you better put out with that recipe!

Or is this some super-secret, life-changing recipe that only you can provide, and only to special people, and only if we individually e-mail you and provide certain personal information? Hmmm, haven't we already been down that road... :wink:

i bought some okra after reading the initial post. i put wrapped some okra up with some yellow squash and a piece of salmon, lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, garlic, and dill. everything was wrapped up together in foil and broiled it in the oven.

it really wasn't too bad. the only thing i didn't like was the okra! it's ok at first, but once you start eating it, it gets all slimey in your mouth. nasty!

sorry alexander!

The only time I eat an abundance of okra is when I make a batch of chicken gumbo.It definitely adds to the flavor.
