Okra is one of my most favorite veggies, and it is SO easy to grow! Okra was the last vegetable left at our house when we purchased it last November. I quickly did a little research and saved the seeds to plant this year. The okra has thrived! I love going out in the garden each day to harvest more okra!
I sometimes saute the okra whole. You can eat the entire okra! However, I have recently been slicing my okra because our homegrown okra isn’t nearly as slimy as the kind I buy at the store.
This okra recipe is a great side to so many dishes! We normally eat it alongside steaks or burgers.
