Okra

Does anyone have good recipes for Okra? It's funny, I buy this veggie every now and then when it looks perfect. But I haven't found a recipe that I love it in yet. Had to ask the experts...

Either cook the heck out of it or barely cook it.

I like to simmer it with a bit of onion, bell pepper and celery (1/4c each) and equal parts tomato. Maybe 30 minutes or till it all blends? Serve over rice.

I like to wrap it around a brick and bake it at a low temp (about 250) for five hours or until the brick is soft. Then I unwrap it, throw the okra away, and eat the brick. :lol:

Sorry. I couldn't resist. (I HATE okra. Can you tell?)

You got me! :)

I fell for it too! :lol: I think you either love Okra or hate it, kinda thing. I would never eat it until I moved south 32 years ago.

Along with those foods... fried shad or herring roe, fried livers and fried okra. Non of which I have had in a long time.

Love the responses! I have used it for gumbos, thanks for the links. I've searched for recipes too, and have mixed it with sauteed onions, tomato over rice, I was just wondering why I am craving that vegetable but can't seem to find a palatable way to prepare it.

LOVE okra! It is actually my favorite green vegetable. I usually just chop it up and sautee it a few minutes in sesame oil and eat it with my eggs in the morning!

If you want fried here is a pretty classic recipe: http://www.southernliving.com/food/kitchen-assistant/fried-okra-recipes-00417000072377/

You can use an all flour mixture too in this recipe. Some people in the south use all cornmeal - just depends on your preference. Rice flour is sometimes a litle gritty so it kind of has a bit of a cornmeal texture. I usually add an egg to the buttermilk because the gluten-free flour sticks to the okra a little more when cooking.

Actually you want my mother to do that for you - she makes awesome gluten-free fried okra! I grew it when I was in the south but don't think it will grow where I live now. I can't even really find it in the stores :(

Thanks again for your links and responses.

I'm actually pretty excited about Prickly's earlier post, the one with the link to make pickled okra and leads to other recipes. I love pickles and crispness and I think that's my answer.

I'd love to try the fried okra recipe, but so far fried foods aren't good on my gut, but I'd be on that like white on rice if I could handle it.

I'll try the brick recipe if the pickles don's work. Thanks, cyber friends, I knew you'd come to the rescue. xxx :D

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
