Okra, Kielbasa, Shiitake Mushroom Soup


Okra is a favorite Southern vegetable. It is available where I live in Charleston, SC during the spring and summer months. Lots of fiber and nutrients, but somewhat “slimy”. The “slime” actually acts as a thickener. Here is a great way to eat okra in a soup along with some other goodies.


I love this soup. It’s simple and healthy. Basically, I use my homemade bone broth, fresh okra, natural Polish Kielbasa, shiitake mushrooms, and sweet onions. Get a tablespoon and try it.



  • Approximately 3 cups raw okra
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced
  • 5 oz. package of sliced Shiitake mushrooms
  • 12 oz. package of natural Polish Kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1/4 inch discs
  • 8 cups of bone broth
  • 1/4 Tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  1. Place whole okras into a steamer pot
  2. Steam for 5 minutes
  3. Cut steamed okra into 1/4-inch discs and place into a Dutch Oven pot
  4. Place onions, mushrooms, and sausage into steamer pot
  5. Steam for 5 minutes
  6. Place into Dutch Oven pot with okra
  7. Add 8 cups of bone broth to Dutch Oven pot
  8. Add red pepper flakes
  9. Bring to boil; then cover and simmer for 20 minutes
  10. Salt and pepper to taste
  11. Enjoy!!!
