Bamiasephardic Okra Recipe
Bamia is okra (oh'-kra) and is a staple throughout the Mediterranean the and in the southern US. Being both sephardic and from Alabama, I was bound by two cultures to develop a fondness for it. Now you can too. This is the recipe that can make an okra lover out of you.

And it is SO good for you: high in fiber, feeds the good bacteria in your intestines and binds to excess cholesterol and toxins in bile acids to escortsthem out of your body. Vitamins A, C, K, B6, thiamin, riboflavin, and folate plus calcium, magnesium, manganese, niacin, iron, phosphorus, zinc, copper and an impressive store of potassium. All this for only 25 calories and less than 6 carbs per serving. How’s that for a nutrient rich super food?

Helpful Hints
Once the bamia begins to cook, resist the temptation to stir.
It is done when the sauce is slightly thickened, and the okra starts to fall apart when pressed with a spoon.
