The star of the dinner tonight is the spicy okra. I need to use a huge package of okra up before it gets rotten and I made spicy okra for dinner.
Rice, tofu and chinese cabbage soup, egg and spicy okra on the right.
Spicy Okra – Ingredients:
Okra (chopped into 1 inch pieces), chili paste ( I use a vegetarian bottled chili paste which contains chili, onion, garlic and ginger)
Fry chili in a tsp of canola oil until it smells wonderful and nose begins to water. 😉
Then add in chopped okra and sautee for about 15 minutes, constantly stirring to prevent burning at the bottom. DO NOT add water as this will make the dish soggy, once the okra is nice and soft, remove from pan and serve with hot rice and another veggie of your choice for a yummy and simple meal.
While cooking dinner, the pups were hibernating nearby as the weather was chilly today.
We watched the history of WWII downloaded from youtube while eating dinner; I have always loved history since in school and this is a very interesting documentary that explains how WWII started, a great watch!
Time for bed! A busy day ahead tomorrow full of meetings and conference calls, then a 5k run at the gym, and a grocery shop after work.
I hope you’ve a had a great weekend and are ready to tackle the week ahead. 🙂
