Inspired by Japanese Sushi dishes, I’ve made the following recipe of white rice with avocado (avocado is very healthy!) Do not be fooled by its simplicity, it tastes delicious! Japanese Sushi dishes often contain the same ingredients as used below, and this dish tastes just like that! This recipe is vegetarian
1 large and ripe avocado
Boiled white rice (2 bowls for 2 people)
Mayonnaise (5 or 6 tablespoons, depending on your taste)
Wasabi (has a sharp taste! – choose the right amount for your taste)
Japanese soy sauce (4 tablespoons – or more if you like)
If you don’t have any Japanese soy sauce, then just use normal soy sauce mixed with some sugar
Last weekend at the market I saw a basket withokra fruit, and it got my attention. I noticed that only foreign people bought this, so I became even more interested. Okra looks like and tastes a bit like zucchini, but different! The plant originally comes from Ethiopia, but nowadays is grown in most warm tropical countries. In most western countries it is quite unknown, although it is sold at markets or Asian shops.
After some research on the Internet I came up with the following recipe: okra with Thai yellow curry. It is a spicy dish, because of the curry and chilies. If you want a less spicy version, you can add some cream or milk, or just leave the chilies out.
Okra is a popular health food due to its high fiber, vitamin C, and folate content. Okra is also known for being high in antioxidants. Okra is also a good source of calcium and potassium. (Wikipedia)
