Okra (Bamyes)

Bamyes is another recipe that I use a lot during the Lenten period. As a child I hated eating okra, I thought it was this slippery slimy vegetable that I just could not attempt to try. As I got older and more daring I tired it and I must say I do like it. In Greece, Bamyes (okra) are very common and can be found very easy in restaurants and markets. Here they are sometimes hard to find and they are not quit the right size. My preference is fresh and medium size. They tend to be easier to cook. So if you are looking to try a new vegetable, give it a try! I think you will be surprised! 2-3 lbs okra 1 medium sweet onion, chopped 4 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup fHere resh chopped parsely
