My favorite vegetable growing up was—hands down—okra. I know it’s not commonly on teens’ lists of favorite veggies, but I was lucky enough to have it at my Nani’s (grandmother’s) home in India, where I could pick it right from the garden. It would then be quickly prepped with spices and some key ingredients, and the result was a dish that is irresistible. Try the recipe below, and it will make okra one of your favorites, too.
