Delicious. Like you, MichelleinHI, I'm veggie but husband's not, and he really loved this, even with the "missing meat"!
this is a tasty combo. i had to use frozen sliced okra, as the availability of fresh okra here is spotty. for our tastes, i added more cajun seasoning (i used my Creole Seasoning). also, we had this without rice as a side dish to some grilled chicken. i see this as a versatile base upon which you can build other tasty variations. next time i might add any or all of the following: green pepper, corn, even garlic sausage, although it would no longer be a vegetarian that way. as a matter of fact, i added a few slices of sausage to some of the leftovers and that is today's lunch! yum!
