This is just what I've been looking for! My garden is putting out TONS of okra this year and I'm always up for a new recipe.


I used frozen okra and black eyed peas. I also didn't have enough tomatoes =( so I used 3 fresh and a can of diced. Lots of cajun spices. MMMM  :)>>>



So, so good!  I couldn't find fresh okra or canned black-eyed peas, so I used frozen versions of both.  Also (when I saw how much it was going to make and realized I had a lot more people to feed) I added leftover cabbage soup from the night before (just tomato sauce, V8, and green cabbage), and I used a LOT more Cajun seasoning than called for...  Anyway, it was great!  One of the most popular dishes at the potluck and nobody there was vegan.  ^-^
