    This was a great recipe... with the following modifications:
    - I added a lot more spices (2x cumin, garlic salt to taste, 1 tsp fajita seasoning, 1 tsp chili spice).
    - Just after splashing the first water, I added about 3 tbsp. fresh-squeezed lime juice.
    I ended up eating the whole recipe! - 12/2/09

    This was easy to make. I had to cook half at a time, since not all the okra will fit in a single layer. And while I was eating the 2nd half, I munched on the entire 1st half. yum! - 9/9/09

    Simple simple to make (just heat and splash with water!).
    My husband and I loved the cumin okra. The cumin, pepper, and salt made a nice coating that was like a lighter version of the batter-fried okra.
    I will make this whenever our farmer's market box gives us okra. - 9/30/08

    I don't know if I did something wrong but I thought they tasted awful. I think it's too much cumin or something. I will try again with my own seasoning blend... - 4/20/10
