Let’s Cook Together!

Hello! You’ve landed on this page because you are ready to cook some delicious okra!  Make sure you have your mum or dad to cook with you. 

Recipe: Grilled Okra

You only need 5 simple ingredients for this amazingly healthy and tasty dish: 

  • 1 lb. fresh okra, with ends trimmed (approx. 350g after trimming)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Cooking instructions:

  1. Heat your grill to medium-high. You can use a dual-contact indoor grill, like a George Foreman grill, a grill pan, or an outdoor grill.
  1. Rinse the okra and dry thoroughly.
  1. Place the okra in a large bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  1. Transfer to your hot grill. Grill until tender (approximately 5 minutes if using a George Foreman grill, or 5 minutes per side if using a grill pan or an outdoor grill).
  1. Enjoy your freshly-grilled okras with your favourite dip or as a side. 

Happy cooking…and even happier eating!
