Wondering what to do with all the okra from your garden? I’ve compiled a list of the best recipes for okra. 

  1. Martha Rose Shulman’s Roasted Okra – I cook it a little bit longer than the recipe states. The thyme in this makes all the difference. 
  2. Okra Tempura – Tempura takes fried okra to a whole new level.
  3. Cheese and Bacon Okra Poppers – I add a chopped jalapeño to the cream cheese; we like these spicy. 
  4. Okra Succotash – Classic summer side-dish; best with garden-fresh tomatoes and corn. 
  5. Grilled Okra – Super simple to throw a few on the grill when you are cooking other things. 
  6. Food Network Okra with Tomatoes – If you have garden-fresh onions, garlic and tomatoes, this recipe is the best. Summer on a plate. 
  7. Okra Water – Health benefits, and easy preparation. If you don’t cut up the okra, it has a more mild flavor.
