Tomato Okra Soup

We are finally getting some tomato and okra ripe and ready. Add a bit of fresh chive to this easy soup for color and zest.

Just place all ingredients but chives in a stock pot.

    Great idea for soup. After seeing my brother’s garden, I wish we had one again.

    Hey Penny!

    I love a garden, but this year has been very hard to keep up. Some years it is very trying.

    After almost 40 years of gardening, I am growing okra for the first time. Now that I am just starting to harvest them I have been looking for recipes. Your recipe looks delicious & it’s so easy. I think it’ll be my first attempt.

    Do you think adding some corn to the mix would work out?

    I am ate mine with buttered corn-on-the-cob on the side. What a great way to utilize the garden harvest. Thanks!
