Okra and Malabar Spinach/オクラとツルムラサキ

Japanese Food

I have twelve okra plants in my small farm, and I can get two or three and sometimes more okra pods almost every day these days. My family likes to have it simply as ohitashi (boiled and eaten with ponzu and katsuobushi (dried bonito shavings) or with natto.

And, in my tiny patches around my house, I have tens of Malabar spinach plants, as you can see in the photos below.

My family likes Malabar spinach as ohitashi, too.

After boiled, this amount reduces to… this amount:

Another dish for supper!

As I said previously, the Japanese love slimy foods, and my family is no exception! We love mulukhiyah, too.
