    OKRA TIP - first cook in a little oil BEFORE adding water or broth. We call this "drying it out". Water makes the raw okra gooey and impossible to eat for those with texture issues. We use okra everyday in okra soup here in the Bahamas. Just make sure all "slime" is cooked until "dry". - 12/21/11

    This is like a Greek family recipe. I use onions and garlic and if using fresh okra, clean and leave 25 minutes in a bowl of water with some vinegar. This will stop it from breaking up and getting gooey. I add some carrots as well. Love it. - 2/13/09

    This is great...but put over some brown or dirty rice OR use wheat or spinach noodles. Very filling and add about 100 calories for noodles or rice. - 2/13/09

  • This sounds great, and I can't wait to try it. I'm going to use no salt added stewed tomatoes to get the sodium down even more. It's super to have a soup or stew recipe that is low in sodium, because most of the canned soups you buy are packed with excessive sodium. - 2/13/09
