Funny, I was wondering the same thing...getting a new fridge this weekend, so trying to use up as much of the stuff in my freezer as possible, and among them, some random frozen okra. Too hot for gumbo or soup, which I would ordinarily use it for. Here are the couple I'm considering:

...And this page has links to several additional threads with ideas for okra:

I like to steam mine and then add a can of low-sodium Italian tomatoes. But I do not think there is any way around its viscosity. If you love okra, you just become accustomed to its sliminess.

I used it for gumbo. And I like the stir fry ideas.

I like it in stir fries, and it goes really well with shrimp.

Personally, I don't care for okra unless its fried.(I'm from Virginia- LOL) So I haven't had okra in quite a while. Sigh. But some people love it all kinds of ways. Just try it out in some soups.

I generally buy the frozen stuff to add to soups and chili, and buy fresh to roast and eat by itself. Okra does a great job of thickening up dishes and I've found the frozen variety hasn't got as much flavor as fresh, so you could always add it to things like rice, vegetable soup, a mixed veg side dish, etc.
