This is an easy dish to make and perfect for a meatless dinner served with french bread and crisp salad. The recipe was published in The New American Diet Cookbook. I made only a few minor adjustments.

Thank you Paula G. for posting this recipe, so good!! I used frozen okra and I do not care to much for peas so added frozen corn. Forgot to get more celery so added a bit of celery seeds and had one great meal!
