Top 20 Ways to Cook Okra

By Lauren Scott, Arizona Farm Bureau Intern

I already know what you’re thinking. When you are trying to whip up a quick lunch or dinner for your family you don’t think of including okra. You probably go for carrots, green beans, or squash; in other words, things you and your family are familiar with. These are also veggies grown here in Arizona. You might not realize it, but we grow okra here too!

Okra doesn’t have a very strong taste, which means it can be combined with lots of different fruits, veggies, and meats to create one-of-a-kind, flavorful dishes. Try breading it and baking or frying it the first time you serve okra to your family. Otherwise, try one of these delicious dishes!
