Okra is a wonderful vegetable that is really simple to make, packed with nutrients and very delicious. Mind you, there is a slight slimy texture to it that I understand isn't necessarily for anybody, but for those who haven't tried it before, I highly do recommend that you do and see for yourself what the buzz is all about!
The first time I had okra was in Japan, where it was served tempura style (fried in a light batter) and served with a sweet tempura dipping sauce. There were no additional seasonings and it was surprisingly wonderful!
That experience inspired me to make okra in a simple, delicate manner without too much seasonings going on to bring out the fresh flavours of the vegetable. Slime-y, but fresh and delicious. It sounds a bit gross, but I really do enjoy it! Here is a really simple but delicious recipe for how I like okra. Enjoy!
