This summer was the summer I found okra. I mean realllly found okra. Although I have fried okra several million times, I mostly did so because that was all I knew. Having only recently branched out to try new recipes, I have been surprised to discover how well okra accompanies foods I make all the time like rice and shrimp.
Here are a few recipes I have saved and though I'd share! I'd love to hear your thoughts on okra. Do you have a favorite dish?
