Okra. Fried, gumbo or pickled? Be nice ya'll.
I know you hate okra - negative comments are not necessary. Please.
Hahaha, well, Patsy, I actually love fried okra, but not until I was well into my adult years. I won't pass up any a gumbo either, yummy! I have never tried pickled okra though. I am not sure I am a pickled kind of person, but maybe I need to try it before I say such.
Why would anyone hate okra? Is that a joke? My absolute favorite way to eat shrimp is smothered in okra. Okra gumbo is also great. I eat okra straight from the garden.
I am from the South. I grew up eating things like fried okra. To me it doesn't get much better than okra fried with some potato and onion, fresh home-grown tomatoes and cucumbers, and a big pan of cornbread.
Fried okra is my favorite. My husband hates it so I always joke that we are going to stop eating all other veggies and only have okra. I like to be the one to cook it though, because I have noticed when buying it from restaurants it is often over fried to the point of no longer tasting the okra.
We love okra grilled whole. Just put a little olive oil, salt and pepper on the okra and grill it until the color turns bright green and while it still has a crunch. Delish!
To answer your question, I vote fried, I'm in Texas y'all.
I love okra fried but for health reasons I no longer eat it that way but I dearly love it with onion and tomatoes; the way my mother fixed them and it changes it into a completely different food. I use this on pasta and rice too! Healthy never tasted so good. If course that dab of real butter sets it off too and healthier than margarine.
