Okra is not just for Gumbo! We eat okra in Japan, too. It is actually a very popular vegetable in summer time there. Okra is rich in vitamins and minerals, and so a healthy choice. Here I made it into a very simple and easy salad.
- 15 okra
- 2-3 tsp soy sauce
- dried bonito flakes(Katsuobushi)
- Boil water in a pot and cook okra about 2 minutes. Drain and let it cool slightly.
- Cut thinly and diagonally and mix with soy sauce. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with bonito flakes.
