This okra stew is inspired by a recent trip to Turkey. This is a popular, regional dish from Southern Turkey. The okra is stewed on low heat in a tomato broth that’s full of aromatic spices. It takes a while to cook, but it’s quite easy to make! This is a light and healthy stew that’s best paired with rice pilaf or bread.
1. Wash and drain the okra.
2. Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven.
3. Sauté the onion and garlic for about 2-3 minutes, until the onion becomes transparent.
4. Add the bell pepper and chopped tomatoes.
5. Add in the coriander, allspice, cinnamon, pepper and salt. Cook together for a few more minutes.
6. In a separate cup or bowl, mix together the tomato sauce and water and pour into pot.
7. Add in the lemon juice and cook together for 2-3 minutes.
8. Add the okra and stir to combine.
9. Cook uncovered on medium heat for about 15 minutes.
10. Reduce the heat to low and let gently simmer for 30-40 minutes.
11. Serve with bread or rice.
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
The best stuffed portabellos ever, and they are gluten-free and high in protein using almond meal instead of bread crumbs!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
Yes! You can cook radishes and they are delicious! The radishes mellow some but still hold firmness. And ramps! They are available in spring for only about 8 weeks so eat them while you can. They have a pungent garlic flavor and make everything taste like spring!
