Simply, easy to make okra recipe, exactly what I was wanting. Flavor is simple and mixture of onions adds to the dish. Recommended for something quick and easy.

Wasn't a big fan of the tumeric tast with the okra, but my husband enjoyed it. Almost as simple, I just shake the okra in a bag w/ flour and seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, soul seasoning) to taste. It's easy, fast, delicious and allows for full okra flavor.

I did not really care for this recipe. I was not familiar with tumeric and did not realize that it would turn the onions a yellow color. It just was not pretty. Taste was ok, but overbearing for the okra.

No flavour. Wouldn't be too bad if you add more spices.

Great Okra recipe. The turmeric is a great flavor.

Very bland, cooking time was no where near enough. They tasted undercooked. Would not make again.

A flavorful recipe that is even greater with added cayenne.
