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?)

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

    • Thanks Barry. It's just up the road from me and it's a place I know very well. Some of my family were there last week for a gig, it's a frightening thought.  You are most definitely not alone and you've found a good site. There are a lot of accounts on here which helped me join the dots and work out what was happening with my own reaction to gluten. The move to a new job may not be coincidental btw, additional stress is linked to changes in celiac presentation. In women pregnancy can bring it about. It makes it easy to dismiss it as stress related. If you've found the answer now you can look forward to healing and hopefully some unexpected health dividends if it's affecting you in multiple ways. I stopped eating gluten and found near immediate relief from brain fog and a lightening of depression. What I didn't count on was the disappearance of chronic back pain that I'd had off an on for many years. There were a lot more examples like that as my time on the gluten-free diet progressed.  The rheumatoid pain in my hand went too. I put together an faq for the diagnostic side awhile back which may be of some additional help. or at least offer some good links to further reputable info:  
    • Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
    • Saturday was the symptoms I have been feeling amplified big time:  Terrible nausea, head ache, dizziness, stomach gurgling, fatigue. And the constipation/strange BMs.  Wasn't prepared for that one.  I sort of took Sunday off and felt a bit better, now the dizziness is ramping up again.  I'm planning on taking a break once a week. Hopefully that's ok.  I do have an appointment with a GI for June 7th. There were no openings until mid July when I called and while I was speaking to the nurse someone must have cancelled and so I grabbed the early June appointment.  But this is all like deja vu. This is exactly how I would feel growing up and most of my life.   Headache, dizzy, nausea.  And the sores on the roof of my mouth!  Ugh. 
    • Also, can I buy the udi's and keep them in the fridge, or do they need to be frozen? 
    • Ennis_TX Thanks so much for your reply.  I am just not prepared to go through the medical procedures required to confirm I have it. I will just have to be satisfied in knowing that I feel better avoiding gluten. My wife recently began working with a gal that does have full blown, and did have the biopsy and everything, and now she is passing lots of advice to me through my wife. Your experiances do seem to be similar to mine. I have the mental stuff and the tingly fingers too! AS you know, there are just SO many side effects, it easy to confuse it with any number of other diseases/food intolerances. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
