Cajun Style Okra

Cajun Style Okra

Okra is a vegetable with a famously squishy, almost gelatinous texture, and is a great way to thicken soups and stews, like the famous gumbo.

It’s often used in African countries like Senegal and Ivory Coast, in some Mediterranean countries and India. It’s also a favorite in the American south, particularly in Louisiana.


  • 2 cups okra
  • ¼ cup oil for frying
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tomatoes, blanched and peeled

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun Spice, ground
