Taylor's Caviar

1 lb     Fresh Field Peas
1 lb     Sweet Potatoes, Roasted and Small Diced
1 ea    Sweet Pepper, Small Diced
1 ea    Poblano Pepper, Small Diced
1/2 ea Cayenne Pepper, Minced (optional/*adds extra heat*)
1/2 ea Onion, Small Diced
1/4 lb  Radishes, Small Diced
1/4 lb
  Turnips, Small Diced
2 Tbs  Cilantro, fine chopped
1 cup   TaylOrganic Tomato Juice (plain, spicy, or sungold)
1 Tbs
   Brown Sugar or Honey
2 Tbs   Cider Vinegar
2 Tbs   Lemon Juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add peas to pot of water with a little salt added and boil until tender. Meanwhile, bake sweet potatoes until just done. (Be careful not to overcook, or they will turn to much once mixed with the remaining ingredients.)  Once the peas and potatoes have cooled, put them into a large mixing bowl and add the peppers, onion, radishes, turnips, and cilantro. Set aside. Then, in a small bowl with a whisk, or a jar with a tight fitting lid, blend together the tomato juice, brown sugar, vinegar, and lemon juice. Pour as much of the dressing as you desire over veggies, add salt and pepper to taste, and stir to blend. Serve right away, or let it rest overnight to allow flavors to blend. Serve plain as a salad, or with chips, crackers, or bread. Enjoy!

 Note: This recipe is extremely versatile. Feel free to play with the flavors, add or subtract veggies, and make it your own.

Crispy Baked Okra

If you love fried okra like me, but are trying to avoid fried foods, then this recipe provides a nice alternative. It turns out so delightfully crispy.

Crispy Baked Okra
1 #         Okra
2 c         Cornmeal
2 c         Panko
2 tsp      Paprika
to taste  Salt and Pepper
3 c         Buttermilk (if you do not have buttermilk on hand, 2 eggs whisked with milk will work.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.Trim the stem ends off of the okra, then chop into 1/2 inch long pieces. Pour buttermilk over okra. Whisk together dry ingredients. Using a slotted spoon. Scoop out the okra, allowing the excess buttermilk to drain off. Place okra into cornmeal/panko mixture and toss to coat. Place okra onto a sheet pan, after shaking off any excess breading. Bake in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until beginning to brown. Halfway through the baking process, use a metal spatula to stir the okra to keep it from sticking to the pan.

Crispy baked okra can make a fun appetizer. They are so easy to snack on. So, here is an accompanying sauce idea. This recipe is incredibly flexible. Feel free to adjust the chili garlic paste and lemon juice to suite your spicy, tangy preferences.

Chili Dipping Sauce 
1 c        Sour Cream
2 Tbs    Mayo
2 tsp     Chili Garlic Paste (i.e., Sriracha)
2 Tbs    Lemon Juice
to taste Salt

In a bowl, stir together all ingredients until smooth.
