Steamed Okra with Green Onions and Lime

From Woman with a Whisk

The original recipe calls for matchsticks of fresh ginger root to be tossed with the green onions and the okra at the end of cooking. I don't care for the texture of ginger matchsticks without cooking it, so I just grated the ginger over the okra and green onions.

  • 1 lb. whole okra
  • 1 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2" piece of fresh ginger root, grated
  • Salt, to taste
  • Heat about 2" of water in a pot until boiling. Place a steamer basket in the bot, then put the okra in the steamer basket and cover the pot. Steam the okra for 7 minutes.
  • While the okra is cooking, heat the oil in a skillet. When hot, add the green onions and saute for 2 minutes.
  • When the okra is finished steaming, set aside in a bowl. Toss with the sauteed green onions, grated ginger and lime juice. Add salt to taste and serve immediately.
