Okra puree with shallots carrot and mediterranean herbs
Did you know that Okra is one of the ultimate beauty food? It has so many wonderful properties and in some parts of the world,where people consume a lot of okras,the consumers look younger,healthier and are less likely to get cancer.Okras can also be used as a facial mask and during World War II people were roasting okra seeds to use them as a coffee substitute.
Especially when you eat okras for the first time you may or may not like the texture.I love it,silky smooth and fabulous.
For the okra puree you need:
200 gr frozen okras
3 large potatoes (diced)
1 shallot (diced)
1 carrot (sliced)
50 ml soy cream
1 rosemary twig
a dash of dried oregano and thyme
Add your cut vegetables in a medium sized pot,cover them with water and a teaspoon of olive oil.
Bring to a boil and add the rosemary twig to the water.Boil veggies until tender and once they are done,drain them.Season,add cream and a tablespoon of olive oil.Now mash the veggies with a sturdy balloon whisk.
Taste and season if needed.
Sprinkle with herbs and serve.
