Okra Advice Needed

TampaAurora | Jul 8, 2010 10:46 PM

My local farmer sold me a plastic bag FULL of okra, and I had wonderful plans to pay fry these with corn meal, as per his suggestion. over the next few weeks with dinners. And then, I had a trip to the ER and the surgical floor of my local hospital just a few short days later. Needless to say, the suckers never got cooked. I just realized that they are still here today while attempting to find something for dinner. I do not want these beautiful vegetables to go to waste in my fridge, but I have absolutely no experience in cooking them.

The only ways I have had them cooked are in Brunswick stew and fried.

The challenges:
I have never cooked okra before, and I am looking for recipes to use up the okra that I bought. Bonus points for recipes that do not require a lot of prep or standing, this particular surgery has a long healing time and requires minimal standing and heavy lifting over the next month. We are a pork and shellfish free house, but can adapt many recipes our there using these ingredients. Help me use up my okra, please!
