Okra and Onion Sauté

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by BETHANY T.

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!
