Whipped Cornmeal and Okra

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Water
  • 6 Pods fresh, tender okra
  • 1 c White cornmeal
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Butter, cut into pieces


Bring the water to a gentle boil in a 3-quart saucepan, add okra and cook
for about 10 minutes. Remove the okra with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Raise the heat under the saucepan so the water boils briskly. Add the
cornmeal in a thin, steady stream, stirring all the while to prevent
lumping. Add the salt and okra; cook, stirring for 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the butter a piece at a time, stirring after each
addition, until all the butter is incorporated. Keep stirring until this
okra has practically disappeared and the cornmeal is light.

Correct seasoning and serve hot.

Serves 4.
