Except for Southerners who cook with this vegetable quite frequently, many people do not know what okra is. Okra is a plant that produces an edible pod with a vast array of nutritional benefits. Try it in this recipe sautéed with roasted cashews.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds small okra
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup salted roasted cashews, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest


  1. Place the olive oil into a large sauté pan over high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the okra and a few pinches of salt and pepper, and sauté for 6 minutes.
  2. Stir the sliced garlic into the skillet, cook for 3 minutes, and then add the roasted cashews and the lime zest. Gently toss the mixture to combine and then serve immediately.
