Recipe by Lori Ross
Leaving the fresh okra whole, trim top stem from okra. Place one layer of okra in microwave safe dish with 2 tablespoons water. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 2-3 minutes on high.* Drain and place in bowl. Serve with lemon and soy sauce for dipping. Eat!
if your okra is large, you may have to cook longer...try one minute increments. I have never tried this with frozen okra but I am sure it would work well to microwave once defrosted.
