    I am cooking for my parents tonight, and I want to surprise them with Okra, which is an unknown vegetable in The Netherlands.

    I actually used to make it for myself, but I forgot what I used to put inside usually just whatever I had in my fridge.

    I guess I will just fry it with some pineapple.. any other ideas?

    Whoa, so many recipes..

    How come it is a Southern food and readily available in the US? What are its origins?

    i believe that okra grows very well down in the southeastern region of the usa...and it's soooo yummy...

    i make my okra succotash like this:

    1 can corn, drained (7.5 oz)
    1-2 cups sliced cooked okra (or desired amount)
    1 can lima beans, drained (7.5oz)
    1 can stewed tomatoes (7.5 oz)
    1 cup dry lentils
    2 stalks green onion (or 1/4 cup red onion)
    4 slices raw bacon
    garlic powder or fresh minced garlic
    cumin
    3-4 cubes of beef bouillion
    salt & pepper
    4 cups of water

    fry bacon with garlic & onion, set aside, drain excess grease, leaving enough grease for flavor

    cook lentils in water with beef bouillin & cumin until half done

    add corn, lima beans, okra, tomatoes to lentil mix, heat till boiling, turn down temp to simmer, cover

    add bacon mix for last 5 minutes of simmering

    serve over white rice if desired for a complete meal
