  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 3/4 lb (340 g) okra, washed, trimmed and cut into ½-inch (1 cm) slices
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Cajun seasoning
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cherry tomato, halved
  • 1 cup (250 mL) corn kernels
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until golden.
  2. Increase heat to high; add oil. Add okra, onion, pepper, celery, garlic, and Cajun seasoning. Sauté for 3 minutes or until veggies are crisp.
  3. Add tomato and corn; sauté for an additional 2 minutes or until veggies are tender crisp. Season with salt. Stir in parsley and serve with lemon wedges.


If you like your creole spicy, add 1/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper with the Cajun seasoning.

When buying okra, look for bright green pods without any blemishes and use within 3 days of purchasing.

Serve as side dish with chicken or over rice.
