My favorite way to fix okra is sauteing some shallots, adding the okra, cooking until it is barely tender.  Next I put in chopped, fresh tomatoes and cook until they are just heated.  After a summer of enjoying this recipe, I was ready for something different.  After researching okra soup on the internet I decided to try some of the ideas I found, plus some of my own.  After looking in the pantry, refrigerator and garden this is what I used:

trimmed and sliced okra

one 14.5 oz can tomatoes with the juice

one sliced carrot

two garlic cloves, chopped

one chopped red onion

one 15.5 can black beans with liquid

1/2 cup brown rice

2 cups chicken stock

1/2 cup frozen corn

fresh chopped parsley

1 T olive oil

1/2 loaf of lavash, toasted

After chopping the carrots, onions and garlic I sauteed them, then added to rice until it was translucent.

I added two cups of chicken stock.  After cooking for twenty minutes I added the tomatoes.  Then I cooked it until the rice was tender, 15 more minutes, and added the okra.  When it was just tender, I cooked the corn until it was heated.  (More corn would have been even better, but that was all I had.)  When I put it in the bowl I topped it with a generous sprinkling of parsley.

It was a substantial soup served with toasted lavash that hit the spot on a chilly evening.  The flavors blended overnight.  The soup was even better the next day.

  2. Excellent job!Perhaps if we had teachers like you the Young Repubes wouldn’t have been so influential, Reagan wouldn’t have run rough-shod over our future and we’d have more choices than either Walmart or Target. :^(

  3. “Nous savons tous ici que vous lisez mon blog parce que vous le trouvez intéressant.”Le pire est que vous en êtes persuadé, il est vrai que de temps en temps vous postez un lien intéressant, mais ça s’arrète là. Restez donc dans vos domaines de compétences à savoir l’HET et le psi. Pour le reste notamment tout ce qui concerne la médecine vous n’êtes pas qualifié.
