Food for the Soul: Simple Spiced Okra

At this point in the summer, our farmer's market is overflowing with okra. One of my favorite ways to eat it is sauteed and dusted in curry powder. It's easy, delicious, and much healthier than the classic fried okra!

Our recipe is based on the one by Kevin Gillespie of Top Chef fame, but we're lazy. We slice the okra in half, sprinkle on our curry powder du jour (along with salt and pepper) and saute it a single oil-coated skillet until it's crispy enough for our taste. We like to eat it with salmon, seasoned with a little Old Bay, because we're fancy like that.
