The okra keeps growing in our drought here in Texas. I am wondering if I have enough recipes to start a series on Okra recipes. I have never cooked with okra till this past month as we watched it thrive and grow even with little to no water.

We cook frittatas to accommodate our gluten-free family member.                

They are easy and filling.

No oven required!

Serve at dinner or breakfast.

Whisk 6 eggs with a tbsp. of baking powder. Set aside

Saute chopped onions, garlic, and 1 cup of sliced okra.

(Pick before it is 4 inches long.)

1 c of shredded cheddar.

Pour all ingredients into a hot skillet. Reduce heat slightly,  and watch closely for about 3-4 minutes and flip over using 1 very large spatula, or two small.

Garnish with cilantro.

  We toasted a tortilla over the burner and sliced to make chips.

Dab with hot sauce and enjoy!

During Moms in Prayer this morning we all prayed that every fiery trial our child endures will serve to fortify and purify their faith…even as gold is refined by fire.

It was a great reminder to me as I toss hot sauce on my eggs each morning to focus on the beautiful faith we receive as we trust and follow His direction in our own fiery trials.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; The Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26 NIV
