When the weather gets cold I start to get cravings for Chinese Food. It seems like it warms you up and is a cozy comfort food. I like to stir-fry at home and make fried rice, so I control how much salt goes in. I have stir fried a bunch of different vegetables, typical things you think of when you think of Chinese, but a friend gave me a recipe for stir-fried okra. I had never thought of using okra but it is delicious. This recipe is so good, I know you will love it! Thank you Ran!
