Ok YA'LL. I've just received my third gallon-sized bag of okra in my CSA. I've fried it all until now. Growing up in East Tennessee means that I love me some fried okra. But enough is enough already with the frying. I've never had okra any other way. So: what are your favorite okra recipes?

I've made the Okra gumbo from the PPK blog at three or four times and I love it! Cheap, easy and it makes a ton.

Grr--totally silly of me to forget about reading that recipe!!! Yes, I'll need to try it. Plus, I also got black-eyed peas in my CSA, so I'll use those as the "bean" component. Very friendly.

I'm not sure about pickling... about the only thing that I like fermented is beer and various cabbages, haha. :) However, I did make Isa's Gumbo and it is cooling on the stove now... smells so good! I may make Bryant Terry's fried okra recipe (with the lime vinagrette). Has anyone tried that?

I like it gumbo, jambalaya, Indian curries, and even chili. It's so pretty!

If you also have CSA tomatoes you should try this Ugandan Tofu Scramble.

Yeah gumbo is awesome if you are doing CSA because you can throw in almost anything!

Gumbo or jambalaya and okra curry would be my first choices too.

BUMPITY BUMP to say that the kid and i love okra AND WE LOVE IT SLIMY. We made extra-slimey chinese-style okra last night and it was mucilagen-icious.

[my garden just keeps on giving, and the okra is still coming....]

Yummm, super-slimy okra is the best.

There is a great recipe in The Ethnic Vegetarian for corn and okra étouffée. That's how we usually roll with okra. Pickled is also amazing.
