This was added to your Recipe Box.
Enjoy this versatile veggie simply boiled this way all by itself, or add some to your soups and stews to thicken and flavor them up.
What You'll Need
- 8 cups water
- 1 pound fresh okra, rinsed and trimmed
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 cup (½ stick) butter
What to Do
- In a large saucepan, combine the water, okra, and salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Allow to boil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the okra is tender.
- Drain then return the okra to the saucepan. Add the butter and cook over low heat until the butter melts and coats the okra, stirring frequently.
These are a favorite when cooked just right, but be careful not to overcook them - that makes 'em get slimy and turn to mush.

We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
