Yum! Both of these recipes sounds yummy, and I love that they're low in sodium. That's one of the things I'm trying to watch, so I'll have to give these a try.

No it's not but I think you will like it. I love okra I try not to eat it fried to much. It's great in vegetable soup.

Thanks for that post. I enjoy Kale. Is okra like Kale? I don't think I have tried okra and it was called for in one of the recipes you posted I think.
Thank you.
Cathy
