Recipe by Constadina Zarokostas-Vasiliades
This vegetarian meal is a very popular dish in Greece, particularly during a religious fast and through the summer season. It’s easy to make and I’ve provided a family recipe that was published a few years back in Metohos Magazine. I find that most Greek dishes cooked in a tomato sauce taste even better with a side of feta and Kalamata olives.
Okra are EXTREMELY low in fat, high in fiber, and VERY low in cholesterol. A 255g portion (without the tomato sauce) has 71 Calories, 1g of fat, and 5g of protein. It consist of 52% Vitamin C, 24% Calcium, 17% Vitamin A, and 9% Iron.
Enjoy another one of my family recipes!
