Fish Stew with Vegetables


This may be the predecessor of Louisiana's gumbos. The okra acts as a thickening agent.



  1. Heat tomato sauce, water, rice, carrots, onion, salt and red pepper in Dutch oven to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Rinse okra and green beans under running cold water to separate; drain.
  3. Cut okra lengthwise into halves.
  4. Add okra, green beans, cabbage and fish to Dutch oven. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and cook until fish flakes easily with fork and vegetables are tender — 10 to 12 minutes.
