Makes 4 to 6 servings

We prepared this simple stir fry recipe with frozen whole okra. The results were consistently tender, fragrant, and fresh-tasting.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sauté first 4 ingredients in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until onion is tender.

Step 2

Add okra; sauté 15 minutes or until okra is lightly browned. Stir in salt.

Step 3

*1/2 teaspoon dry mustard may be substituted for 1 teaspoon mustard seeds.

I just burned the heck out of the onions, but we ate it anyway to not waste okra from our CSA. It had a really nice flavor and we decided to make it again and be more careful.

What a great okra recipe! I chopped up fresh okra and used a regular yellow onion. I cooked the okra about 8-10 minutes and only added 1/4 tsp salt. I agree that increasing the other spices might be good. We will definitely make this again while okra is available at the farmers market.
