I am ashamed to admit that our next box comes tomorrow and the okra that I was so thrilled to receive 13 days ago was still in our fridge tonight. D. Dishwasher has been working ridiculously long at work, so I’ve been cooking for myself and never remembered to pull out the vegetables down in the drawer….
Luckily they had not gone bad! Well, 3 or 4 of the little guys had, but out of a pound that is not much. So I looked up a recipe that would be similar to the grilled okra that I loved on the 4th of July, but wouldn’t require a grill.
If you are interested in trying it out, just chop okra, dry it, add oil and seasonings, then cook at 450º for 25 minutes!
If you’re curious, the brown ‘sauce’ on the rice and chicken is Madras Lentils. It reminds me of chili and is one of my favorites to use in a super-quick dinner.
