Creole Okra

I grew up with a Cajun father so eating Creole food was a way of life. We still eat a ton of Creole and Cajun food in our home. One of my favorite recipes is Creole Okra. I love okra to begin with so that helps. This is a great combination of ingredients that produce a wonderfully flavored veggies dish full of veggies and flavor and very low in calories.

One of the many great things about this recipe is you can adjust the heat level by using more of less Tony Chachere Cajun Seasoning or by changing the degree of heat in the can of Rotel you choose.

  • 16 ounce bag frozen (un-breaded) okra
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large onion diced
  • ½ teaspoon Tony Chachere Cajun Seasoning
  • Mild Rotel Tomatoes 1 can drained
  • 14 ounce can diced tomatoes (un-drained)
  • Salt as desired


  1. To a medium size pot add one diced onion and sauté until the onion starts to get a nice brown color. You can add margarine to the pot to help the onion brown, or you can use a few tablespoons of water to get the same affect without the calories. 
  2. Next add the garlic and allow to cook until it becomes fragrant about another minute. Now add the remaining ingredients, tomatoes, Tony’s and the okra. 
  3. Cook until okra is tender add salt if necessary.
