    One of the most controversial vegetables, many doubt whether okra is even edible. Well Sandra R. and I are fussing about how best to cook okra! While we agree it's yummy, we each think our own way to cook it is best.

    What do YOU think about okra?

    Yummy? It's a tad on the bitter side if ya ask me.

    And the ubiquitous slime is just too much for a refined gentleman to bear.

    I'll settle for green beans or broccoli. Even fiddleheads when they're in season.

    Prefer Lambs Quarter, myself. No Lambs Quarter is safe from my greedy pallet.

    I actually seeded the stuff out back for next year.

    I'm a gumbo girl and that wasn't listed. Chicken or shrimp, dark roux, lotsa garlic and lotsa okra. (No tomatoes, no sausage, please.) Slurp

    Every time I've had Okra, it's been revolting. I understand it's difficult to get right.

    Nova's recipes got me goin! I've only made Okra in gumbo, never tried it as a plain veggie and never would have thought to put soy sauce on it. Just cooked some up and it was pretty good! Had it with my leftover Honey Walnut Shrimp. Uhmmmm good! Not slimey at all if you don't cook it too long.

    Okra, in a zesty tomato sauce served on a bed of rice.......MMMMMmmmm good!

    I can cook it just great but then we tasted my neighbours okra- her's beat mine to smithereens!
