Corn Okra Creole

Corn Okra Creole is such a great summer side dish. Corn, okra, and diced tomatoes combine with creole spices to make a fresh, healthy, and flavorful dish.

Make Year Round

Corn Okra Creole is a great way to use fresh summer corn and okra from the farmers market. But you could enjoy it all year long by using frozen corn and okra.

This is a great dish to try if you think you don’t like okra and its sliminess. You’ll notice when you first start cooking the okra, it is really slimy, but the longer you cook it, the less slimy it gets.

In addition to corn, okra, and tomatoes this recipe also contains onion and green bell pepper. A tablespoon of tomato paste is added to up the tomato flavor.

Corn Okra Creole Recipe Tips

You can use any kind of Creole seasoning or Cajun seasoning. I like to use Tony Chachere’s or Zatarains. Plus I add some Tabasco sauce for extra heat. Serve with extra Tabasco sauce if you want it more spicy and a side of cornbread is great with it too.

This dish makes a great addition to a summer cookout and goes well with grilled chicken, steak, or pork.

  1. Love the blend of vegetables and seasonings!
    Don’t notice the slippery of the okras, mixes right in.
    Served with chicken breasts.

  4. This was delicious and so easy! Perfect to use up my CSA box this week! Topped it with sautéed Creole seasoned shrimp. I will certainly make this again- thank you. 🙂

  5. Made this yesterday. I only had a yellow bell pepper and white onion so I used that. I didn’t have any tomato paste so I left it out. It was delicious. Will use original ingredients the next time I make it. This is a keeper recipe!

    So good! I used to get okra corn and tomatoes from a nearby bbq place but they relocated a couple of years ago. I recently saw okra in the grocery store and decided to give it a try. This recipe tastes just like I used to get, if not better! Thank you so much!

    Great dish for upcoming summer parties! I’ll definitely make it this weekend for my next family reunion. Thanks for sharing, Christin! 😀

      I think she meant onion where she says corn the first time. Usually I saute my bell pepper with the onion. I picked up on the typo like you did. (:
