I’ve been trying to grow okra in my garden. It has slowly been producing and I’ve been able to make an occasional side dish with the few okra that I harvest. This morning, as I walked around the garden, I found five okra that were ready for harvest. My husband had just come back from Oahu where I had sent him to Marukai to pick up yamaimo. I had natto in the fridge. Perfect!!!
I washed the okra and parboiled it and cooled it down. Then just chop it into small pieces and put it in a bowl.
Then peel and chop the yamaimo into small pieces and add it the the same bowl. Add a container of natto.
Add a dab of grated wasabi and some shoyu and mix all together.
I topped it off with katsuobushi and ate it with some freshly picked shiso from my garden. What a great garden to table breakfast. Living Hilo Style.
