This is just what the name says: a slush of okra. As a side dish, it’s best with rice and a curry. It can also be served as a soup, in which case you could blend it if you like.


  • cups (1 L) water
  • 40 to 50 fresh okra pods, sliced into ½-inch (1.3 cm) rounds


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a soup pot. Add the okra, onion, garlic, tomato, Scotch bonnet, optional Holiday “Ham,” green seasoning, salt, celery salt, and thyme. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 35 to 40 minutes stirring occasionally, until the okra is very soft.
  2. Taste and add more salt if you like. Serve with wedges of lime, to squeeze over the dish.</
