mostly healthy, mostly local, mostly homemade, mostly vegetarian food
Catherine - I would, but I'm a bit unsure about okra. Maybe that will be a veggie I discover in a couple years :)-Crystal
No problem! I'm sure I'll have a couple of emails by the end of the day! Okra's really good -- give it a chance sometime. I thought I didn't like okra for a long time . . . and then I made it myself once and LOVED it! The little seed-type things in the middle are the best -- sweet, with a slight firmness to them . . . a little like smaller green peas, but BETTER. Yum!
I never liked okra either, but now I do.I would have taken this recipe, but I haven't even emailed you the results of the last testings I did!
Btw, you are on a roll, with all these new recipes!
ack. this makes me feel like a slacker too- I'm going to put your recipes on the fast-track next week! I am so excited about testing them, but life has been getting in the way a bit. doh.
Catherine, yes, you can send me the 2 pages about polenta! Thanks a million! ANd I can test this if it is ok to use frozen okara.
Oh, but before I really commit to testing, what's a hoppin john?
I can test it too, if you need me to! I love okra!Courtney
Hoppin' John is a southern dish with black-eyed peas, okra, and other veggies. (Peppers and onions . . . still want to test it, Leslie?) It's usually served on New Year's Day, and eating it is said to bring good luck for the New Year. Many people like Hoppin' John served over brown rice, but I prefer mine over cornbread. Yum! Courtney, I'll email you the recipe!
Would it be good over cornmeal (clears throat... polenta!)? Yes, I still want to test it. Peppers and onions are Ray's fav veg combos and I just give him my onions because I like the flavor.I try it because I don't eat many (or any?) southern dishes. Just SW.
Hoppin' John would be awesome over polenta, I think! Never would have thought of that -- awesome idea! Recipe headed your way . . . !!
