Okra is one of those foods that people love or hate (or, in some cases, love to hate). "It's slimy", "It's hairy", "My mom made me eat it!" Whatever. I love it. I love it pickled, I love it in soup, and I love it in this super fast and easy recipe...and cooked like this it is neither slimy nor hairy.
|A lovely okra bloom that turns (very quickly) into...|
|...pods. Now, they are a little hairy, but not if you pick them when young (about 4" long is the max I let them grow). They are also slimy while cutting them up, but not after they are cooked. I promise.|
|Oh! I also added some dried thyme and a couple of bay leaves and a splash of Marsala.|
|Topping some white rice, a delicious meal in minutes. For leftovers I added a few more tomatoes while it was reheating and had it as a side with chicken. Mmmm, mmmm good.|
