    PaulaG's Note:

    This is from a March 1994 Betty Crocker cookbooklet. My garden is doing great and I was looking for new and different ways to prepare okra. This is a nice low-fat version.

      I really enjoyed this! I'm an okra fan, but don't often find new ways to prepare it. Instead of serving as a side dish, I decided to make this into a one-dish meal, and added about 1 1/2 cups of pulled pork that I had leftover from earlier in the week. I used a red pepper instead of green (don't like the green ones) and fresh tomato from my garden. The combination of lots of veggies and rice was very filling without being too heavy calorie wise- always a bonus! I thought this had plenty of flavor, although I did reseason with a bit of salt at the end. Next time I might bump the pepper sauce up as well, but that's just adjusting for personal taste. Thanks for a great dinner!
