There's something magical about okra, and it's this:
No matter how you cook it, no matter what you do with it, someone will ask, "Will I like this if I don't like okra?"
That's why it's called okra. It's not called magical mystical chameleon fruit.
For instance, here's a recipe for people who like okra:
1: Make a pizza, with a Trader Joe's herbed pizza dough (they're okay, the regular is better) and a simple sauce of garden tomatoes, red bell pepper, red miso, and seasonings.
2: Top it with mozzarella and gouda, and okra, salami, and pancetta.
The okra roasts, and adds a green pepper like flavor. But it's still okra.
Here's a recipe for people who don't like okra:
1: Eat an apple.
