Give okra a spicy twist by stir-frying it with cayenne pepper. The lemon juice, cumin and fennel help balance the spiciness.
1 lb fresh okra, trimmed and sliced into 1/2" thick rounds
1 cup onion, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground fennel
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 In non-stick frying pan, sauté okra and onion in oil, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
2 If okra looks dry, add 3 tablespoons water and/or cover the pan during cooking.
3 When vegetables are soft, add in lemon juice. Reduce heat and add cumin, fennel, cayenne and salt. Stir for 2 minutes, or until flavors are blended. Serve warm.
