Beets & Okra Purple Autumn Beauty

  • Perfect in nourishing our body and blood

  • Calming the heart

  • Lubricating the intestines, for those who suffer from constipation.

  • Okra also lubricates the lungs, for those suffering from dry cough

I served it with my favorite super-grain Millet. Can be replaced by whichever you prefer.


3 shallots

3-4 beets, cut into cubes

12-15 fresh okra (Lady Finger) pods, trim off the top of the pod

Curry Powder (any type you like – Mild to Wild, Thai-Indian-Cambodian)

½ ginger root, grated

5-6 ripe tomatoes, chopped finely to make a sauce OR canned organic crushed tomatoes

2-3 garlic cloves

½ can coconut milk

How to?

  1. Chop shallots and garlic, fry them lightly in coconut oil

  2. Add okra pods and stir lightly

  3. Add chopped tomatoes, curry powder, beets. Stir and simmer for 30 minutes

  4. Add grated ginger & coconut milk

  5. Adjust fluids as needed

  6. For the millet: 1 cup rinsed millet to 1.5 cups of water. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes
