As promised, my Okra Curry recipe. Now, before your turn up your nose, remember what I said yesterday about trying new things and pushing your limits. This recipe is very easy to make, very low in calorie, full of vitamins and contains more fiber than you can imagine. Trust me. It’s really good. Not as good as pizza, but good.
EZ Okra Curry – serves 4 (unless you eat like me, then it serves 3)
1 ½ tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 ¾ tsp curry powder
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 ½ lb fresh or frozen okra, chopped (I use frozen, not thawed)
1-2 green chilies, finely chopped and seeds removed
1 tbsp lemon juice
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 4 minutes. Add curry powder and cayenne pepper, sauté 1 minute. Add green chili and okra, cook for about 3 minutes, stirring. Reduce heat to medium low. Add ¼ cup water and cover until okra is tender. About 5 minutes. Remove cover, continue on med low for about 2 more minutes, toss in lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Serve with brown rice and garnish with chopped organic tomato bits.
Tomorrow I’ll share some ideas for fun, new things to try over the weekend. Stay tuned for that…
Coming in the next weeks… The GP-2011 Project (Guinea Pig 2011). I’ll be leading a husband and wife team trough the suggestions I make on this blog and following them through their progress. You, as readers will receive the benefit of hearing the stories of their results for better or for worse. We’ll be finding out not only what they’re made of, but also just how much I really know about fitness. Amusing for sure!
