Fungi (aka New Ways with Okra)

Day 16 of the Vegan Mofo is: What’s your favorite late summer food? Mine just so happens to be okra.

Okra is one of those foods that people generally aren't indifferent to. Either they love it or they hate it. I love it in its many forms - fried, pickled, in a gumbo. This recipe might help those who can't decide. It is like fried okra without the frying, boiled without the sliminess. It doesn't look pretty, and no, it is not fried okra gone awry.


One bag of frozen cut okra
1-1/2 c. cornmeal
2 T. butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the okra according to package directions. When done, slowly stir in the cornmeal, and keep stirring until there are not lumps. Add the butter, salt and pepper, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally while it is simmering. Serve. Enjoy!


  1. I love growing okra but the problem is, I never know how to use it! I end up just throwing it in whatever I'm cooking, haha. I like the idea of this Fungi, it looks really easy to make, I will remember this when I have heaps of okra that needs eating!

  2. Great looking recipe. I love okra and I, too, will be bookmarking this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    I will be sharing this post on Vegan MoFo Blog for the weekly Round Up.
