Ingredients

1 pound small okra pods

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon honey

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. Wash the okra and pat it dry with paper towels. Top and tail it, discarding any blemished or hard pods. Heat the olive oil in a heavy saucepan and saute the okra in the oil for 3 to 5 minutes, turning each pod once. Add the honey, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and water. Cover, lower the heat, and simmer for 15 minutes, adding more water if necessary. Serve hot.
