Creole Okra -Okra comes from a large vegetable plant thought to be of African origin, and it was brought to the United States three centuries ago by African slaves. The word, derived from the West African nkruma, was in use by the late 1700s. Grown in tropical and warm temperate climates, it is in the same plant family as hibiscus and cotton.
"This SPICY no-cook chilled soup is made for times when you have a bonanza of ripe tomatoes on hand. The toppings really make it a meal. I like to add a few leaves of tender butterhead lettuce, crumbled crispy bacon, and toasty croutons made from a loaf of country-style bread." -- Andrea Reusing, chef-owner, Lantern restaurant, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
I've been doing something similar for the last couple of years. I put my oats, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, fruit of choice & almond milk in a jar & frig till morning. This version will provide a much welcomed new taste.
