My boyfriend loves okra. I have never eaten it before, let alone how to cook it. But I saw some fresh okra in my store on sale this week and bought it. I searched for recipes, there were plenty for fried, stewed with tomatoes, and for gumbo. I had no clue. So I just asked him how he likes it. I used his basic method and added the onion and garlic on my own. Tastes pretty good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a pan of salted water to a boil.
  2. Add okra, uncut--whole.
  3. In a separate sauté pan, heat butter then sauté onions until tender.
  4. Okra should be tender at this time. Drain okra from water then add to butter and onions.
  5. Add garlic.
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Sauté for about 3 minutes.
  8. Enjoy!
