Okra also known as Ladyfingers

The Asian tables at the farmers market have a variety of exotic foods. Okra is one of them. Pick them small about two inches in length otherwise they are a bit tough.

Toss in the 7" round pot and cook for one hour.

Meanwhile take one small red onion from the garden, one small garlic, one small bunch cilantro, and chop fine, chives and all.
Add one jalapeƱo chopped fine.
Add two tablespoons sunflower oil (Whole foods has an organic version) and one tablespoon vinegar.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix and serve.

Cooking okra in the solar over does not have the slime traditionally associated because the food is cooked without water.
