I've made this a couple of times now. The first time I followed the recipe and it turned out great. The second time I found I didn't have any canned tomatos but I had a few roma's so I diced those up and added a little tomato sauce. It still turned out perfect. Every one at my house loves it either way. I sometimes add a little Creole seasoning for a little extra kick. This is one of those recipes that's just real hard to goof up. Thanks for posting a great recipe! Read More

Not bad but pretty bland as given so it needed additional spices. I added minced garlic and cayenne and it made it a lot better. It's a nice base for a lot of possibilities. Read More

I made this without the bacon and it was really simple to prepare. I used fresh chopped tomatoes and red pepper flakes. It kind of reminded me of ratatouille. Read More

Great recipe. I used Zataran's Creole spice to give it some zing. I also omitted the celery since we didn't have any. I liked as well as my husband. Read More

Delicious healthy and filling! I made a few modifications: used a full green pepper; omitted the celery; for the can of tomatoes I used "Hunt's Diced Tomatoes with Green Pepper Celery and Onion". I mixed up my own Cajun-type seasoning: 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour 1 tsp season-all 3/4 tsp garlic salt 1/2 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. I stirred this into the mixture in place of the "salt and pepper to taste". This was wonderfully hearty and I will make it again. Thanks Gwynn! Read More

Very easy quick and tasty!:) I was a little skeptical at first but this turned out to be a great recipe for okra. I don't like celery so I omitted the celery and used 1 bell pepper instead. Also I added some garlic powder paprika and a small amount of cayenne pepper. I used canola oil for sauteeing instead of bacon grease (I omitted the bacon altogether to make it more healthy). The result was very yummy! And we didn't have a problem with the "slime" normally associated with okra -- maybe sauteeing the okra took care of this. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I thought this was very good - I had to add several seasonings to make it just right or I would have given it 5 stars. I added fresh parsely garlic pepper seasoned salt and a pinch of chili powder. However I will definitely be making this again. I served it over brown rice with a fried egg and it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Super!!! A If I could give it more stars I would. I didn't realize okra could taste this good w/out being deep fried. I added green chilies because we like food a little more spicy. AWESOME!! Read More

I hate Okra that has always been the way with me. Hate it! Then I started a garden and someone gave me some orgaic Okra seeds. I planted them - I don't know why but I did and they came up beautifully. Well this receipe changed my mind on Okra. My husband and I loved it. I cut them fresh from the garden and did the receipe pretty much just as it is written except for adding some creole spice and jalepenos for heat. It was fantastic I can't wait to make it again. I am so happy for two reasons one this great receipe and two - I didn't waste space in my garden planting this Okra now what to do with the eggplants!! Read More
