  1. 200 g okra, washed and patted dry
  2. ½ cup quinoa
  3. 1 medium red onion
  4. 2 cloves of garlic
  5. ½ inch ginger
  6. 1 green chilli
  7. Fresh coriander leaves
  8. Light olive oil
  9. Salt
  10. A pinch of turmeric (powder)

–          Preheat oven to 200 C

–          Prepare/cook quinoa as you do (quinoa : water is generally a 1:2 ratio for me)

–          Chop the onion, garlic, chilli and ginger finely

–          Also prepare the onion mixture by heating oil in a pan, adding garlic, ginger, chilli and onion, and cooking till the onions are translucent. Add the cooked quinoa, season with salt and turmeric and combine well.

–          Take each okra and slit vertically half way through, to enable stuffing.

–          Brush the okra with oil and roast for 15 minutes. Take them out, let them cool for a bit and stuff them with the onion-quinoa mixture. Roast the stuffed okra for another 10 min. Top up with fresh coriander leaves and serve with roti or rice.
