      I could eat this everyday. In fact, I almost do -- I'm on my third batch in two weeks. I'm allergic to nuts, so have to skip the garnish, but otherwise I didn't change a thing. Delicious!

      Revised to 5 stars. This is yummier the second day! I never though okra, sweet potatoes and cabbage would be so tasty. I found this recipe on Dottie's Weight Loos Zone (, and I was about to post it, but you beat me to it! My batch varied in that I used veggie broth to saute the onions instead of oil (my recipe actually called for white wine, which also would have been good) and I omitted the peanuts. This makes ALOT! Listed as only 3 WW points.
