Recipe too “boring” and simple for you? Ready to try something daring but still delicious? It’s simple. Let’s get started …

  • Add 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger with the garlic
  • Throw in a handful of tiny grape tomatoes with the okra for brightness & juiciness
  • Sprinkle on some freshly chopped mint before serving
  • Use a green onion cut into short lengths and then slivers instead of garlic for a gentler flavor
  • Drizzle on some soy sauce instead of sprinkling salt at the end
