From the Sugar Happy Kitchen: Lamb Okra Stew



Okra is one of those vegetables that is not common in the East or West Coast. However, in the South, it is

 a staple in their cuisine. There are many ways you can prepare it: pickling, baking, or mixing it in a tomato sauce. But most commonly, you will find it as an ingredient in Gumbo.

My recipe has origins in the Middle East. Closer to where Okra is believed to have migrated from, Africa & Asia.

This delightful recipe will surprise you anytime during the year. It’s perfect for a cold wintery dish or serve it in the evening in a cool climate.
