  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped okra
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 pound cooked ham, cubed
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black-eyed peas


  1. Heat 1/3 cup oil in a medium saucepan over medium low heat, and whisk in flour. Whisking constantly, cook 5 to 7 minutes, until a golden brown roux has formed.
