The base recipe was ok - but in needed a lot of extra spices to make it flavorful. I did try this first before rating it - so that's what the 3 star is base on. After some adjustments I would absolutley give this a 5 star.
1. Cooking the okra for 30 mins is way too long - by the time the dish is finished the okra is mush.
2. I added - 2 1/2 tbls Old Bay, 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper
3. Reduced the water to 6 cups
4. 2 tbls tomato paste
5. Next time I will add more tomatoes
With the added spices and reduced water this was a AMAZING! I served over rice. This was enough for me and my husband to have for dinner and both take left overs for lunch the next day.
