(seitan, soyrizo, onion, fennel, cayenne, chile powder, jasmine rice, veg stock, salt, pepper, parsley)
Tomato and Okra Stew
(olive oil, onion, okra, tomato, parsley, salt and pepper)
Just before the seventh level of hell opened directly above the house and unleashed about a foot of rain, it seemed only appropriate to have some New Orleans style food.
I don't know if I can convey how just how odd it is that a guy who has lived in the shadow of the Great Lakes all his life can love Okra as much as I do. Admittedly, it came to me late -- only 10 years ago or so, but it is real soul food to me...
