Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped okra, fresh or thawed frozen
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 4 cups chicken broth

Preparation

1. In a small skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the okra and cook, stirring frequently, until no longer slimy, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

 

2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until it is a light chocolate color, about 5 minutes (this is the “roux”).
