"Okra and cashews are central to Brazilian cuisine; here the vegetable is lightly sauteed with slivers of garlic and tossed with the nuts for a great crunch." Food & Wine Magazine. From: Brazilian Party with Daniel Boulud and Artist Vik Muniz, Published April 2010, fast, healthy, vegetarian and tastes wonderful!!!:) However, we added some more heat - crushed red pepper flakes and it was great!;)
