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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the sliced okra in boiling water just until tender; set aside.
  2. Saute the onion and garlic in oil until the onion is soft and golden.
  3. Add the celery and greepeppers, cook until tender.
  4. Add tomatoes and heat to boiling.
  5. Reduce heat, add seasonings adjusting to fit personal taste and simmer for 45 minutes.
  6. Add okra, peas and beans.
  7. Cook a few minutes until peas are done and beans and okra are warmed.
  8. Serve over cooked brown rice.

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!

This gets 5 stars for several reasons: 1) it's nice and easy to make; 2) apart from the okra, every ingredient is a 'basic' that I always have to hand so a very useful recipe; and 3) perhaps the best reason, this dish tastes great. Thanks PaulaG.
