Other Info

Serves:  8.

Additional information: Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Grated or ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup vegan rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil or tahini
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoon vegan brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • 1 16-ounce package frozen gumbo vegetables (or mix together a comparable quantity of frozen okra, bell peppers, celery, and onions)
  • 12 ounces fat-free tomato sauce (not spaghetti sauce, as the seasoning would be wrong)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (if you use salt, as we do)
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried ancho chiles (substitute a good chile powder)
  • 2 hefty squirts veggie worcestorshire sauce
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 large clove garlic, pressed or minced (we keep a bag of peeled garlic cloves in the freezer, extremely convenient--we peeled them ourselves, though--amazingly, a frozen clove presses quite nicely)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano


We made this up, and have gradually been perfecting it.

Mix together all ingredients and microwave or simmer on the stovetop until the okra is tender: between 5 and 15 minutes. Serve over rice to soak up the sauce. Serves 3-4.
