About this recipe: Okra works well with tomatoes in this Creole-inspired vegan side dish.
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 can 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 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is as authentic as it comes and I should know because my Creole mamma made this all the time. She would also add a little fresh or frozen shrimp at the end for a slightly different taste. Great recipe! - 25 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A very good Creole Okra recipe! I made two changes. I used Ro-Tel tomatoes and, because it is summer, I substituted some of my fresh lemon thyme for dried thyme flakes. - 11 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
