Chinese-Style Okra


  • About 1 pound okra, or less - DO NOT SLICE!!!
  • 1/3 cup Chinese soy paste*
  • 1/2 garlic clove, finely minced**

* A little like soy sauce, but lighter and more viscous; should be available in most Oriental grocery stores.

** You can use 1 whole clove if you really like garlic.


  1. Mix sauce ingredients together about 1/2 hour before using. Please note that you will need to dilute sauce with a little water (1 to 2 tablespoon should do the trick).
  2. Boil okra until tender (for about 3 minutes). Cool briefly, dip in sauce (like you would using potato chips and chip dip) and eat. This is simple and really tasty.
