Spiced Okra

Spiced Okra

Summer time is coming and that means Okra Season!!  I have to admit, it was not a food that was common in my household as a child.  However, it just looked really good! You know how when you look at a vegetable and it just looks fantastic? It made me think of when I went to an Indian restaurant and had it for the first time.  The texture and flavor  was fantastic.  It didn’t have the sliminess that people talked about. I spoke to some of my friends and fellow foodies, it turns out that its all about how you cook it!

Ingredients:

  • 4cups of diced okra
  • 1 tomato diced (remove the seed pulp before dicing)
  • 1 tsp of fresh minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of organic chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp curry
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp of srirachi
  • 2 tsp of organic coconut oil
  • 1/2-1 tsp of black or pink sea salt

Directions:

  • Heat up a pan over high heat and melt 1tsp of coconut oil.
  • Add the okra and fresh garlic to the hot oil in the pan.
  • Make sure you keep the okra moving in the pan, so that it does not burn.
  • Cook the okra till it is tender.
  • When the okra is done, move the okra to a plate and set aside.
  • Clean out the pan and heat up the pan again and melt the last tsp of coconut oil.
  • Once the oil is melted, add the curry and cumin to the oil. (This will release the fragrance in the spices.)
  • Add in the tomato and cook for a min.
  • Next add in the cooked okra with the srirachi and cook for another 2min.
  • Turn off the flame and toss in the cilantro…season with salt to taste.
  • This makes 4 servings.
