I love when I get my hands on a fresh, whole ingredient! Most of them I could just wash off and eat right out of the garden!
Sometimes, my family likes a little preparation...so here is what I did to simply elevate this delicious okra!
I had about 30 small delicate okra and I washed them and then patted them dry.
Next, I like to trim off the ends so the whole thing can be eaten off the plate! Next, I warmed up a skillet with about a tablespoon of organic unrefined coconut oil.
Lightly saute the okra in the coconut oil for about 5 minutes, turning and making sure they do not burn.
Finally, toss your okra in your favorite serving dish and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with Thai Ginger sea salt! The okra should still retain it's freshness, but be warmed up and seasoned just nicely!
My 4 and 6 year old cannot get enough of them! I'm a happy Mom!
