    This was very good. I didn't have fresh okra so I used a box of baby lima beans. This was even better the next day. - 12/27/07

    Wow, that is a LOT of sodium! Eliminating added salt, and using reduced or no-salt-added tomatoes and broth would make a huge difference. - 1/9/10

  • I used sodium free broth and tomatoes (cuts down the sodium a lot) and left out the okra, added carrots and near the end kale in place of okra. I also used precooked brown rice (it takes much longer than 15 mins. to cook it). This was great thanks! - 2/11/12
