  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until limp. Add the green pepper; cook and stir until tender. Drain the tomatoes, reserving juice, and pour them into the skillet. Season with thyme, parsley, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes over medium heat.
  2. Add the frozen okra, and pour in enough of the reserved juice from the tomatoes to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until okra is tender.

This is as authentic as it comes and I should know because my Creole mamma made this all the time. She would also add a little fresh or frozen shrimp at the end for a slightly different taste. ...

A very good Creole Okra recipe! I made two changes. I used Ro-Tel tomatoes and, because it is summer, I substituted some of my fresh lemon thyme for dried thyme flakes.

I used fresh okra and it was great. Even the folks in my household who think they're non-okra eaters gobbled it up!

I thought this was a little spicy, and I do like hot dishes. It was a nice meal for one or two, but nothing I'd serve to company. I think I'll add some chicken and shrimp and rice to the leftove...

Mmmmm! Really good! This was my first time making okra (and second time eating it...first experience wasn't too great) and it was really yummy! We like lots of garlic so I doubled it and ende...

I've been making a similar recipe since I started cooking. Its great for frozen okra and even better if you can find fresh. Also, you can add a couple of stalks of dices celery to it for additio...

My husband and I loved this recipe. I didn't have cayenne pepper so I used red pepper flakes instead. It was very good. I think next time I will add some shrimp. Thanks for sharing.

Definitely my favorite way to have okra. Even my kids enjoyed this recipe, (I was afraid it might be too spicy). I mixed the leftovers in a gumbo soup I made with it and served them together w...
