Okra with Sesame Sauce



I used to be hooked on Kewpie products, especially the sesame dressing. The flavour was always so complex that in my head it could go with anything.


Okra is always a funny veg because you hate it or love it, especially when it hasn't been treated well or cooked to death in a stew. So to make more people love it, why not dump one of my favourite sauces there?


I made my own version of the sauce with tahini because I figured it was close enough and also sesame based. Turned out amazingly well and relatively similar
