        It's delicious fried, but fried foods aren't good for me, so I seldom have fried okra.

          I just can't tolerate brussels sprouts at all. Or beets. Just the thought makes me wanna barf.

            I really like most vegetables except canned spinach and peas. Boiled okra is disgusting too -- too slimy. I think it's really only good fried, but I don't eat fried stuff.

              Beggies??? Are those related to barfoofs?

              Thank you, Mary Rae, for your lovely picture!

                Interesting. I like stuffed bell peppers. I guess it's sort of the same principle, only not cooked.

                So, is it not slimy if it is fried?

                  What I wanna know is how many of the okra-hating people are Southerners. Gumbo, stewed okra with shrimp, fried okra, and yes even boiled okra, are some of my absolute favorite dishes. I'm shocked to see it's got a 48% hate-rate. I was sure that would be asparagus!

                      I am not a Southerner. My daughter and I were shopping once and she wanted to know what okra was, so I bought some so she could try it. She took ONE bite. For some reason she lost interest after that.

                      So, did I cook it wrong? (I boiled it) Is there a way to cook it where it isn't slimy?

                          I'll give you a pass. Even my aunt is just starting to like okra after 58 years. Strange that she nevertheless cooks some of the best stewed okra on the planet.

                          I'm not much of a cook. Stewed okra is stir fried on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet until the diced okra, spicy tomatoes, shrimp, ham, onions, etc. sweats down into a dry stew. It's still a little slimy.

                          Fried okra is battered and deep fried. It's not so slimy at all but it's only good hot and fresh.

                            OK, here is my BAD list:
                            Peas, Lima Beans, Squash, and radishes. I'll eat pretty much everything else, but I do demand that an animal die for my every meal.
