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!
