Steamed okra: an acquired taste
Which is my loss, come to think of it. For okra is high in fiber, vitamin C, and folate content (according to Wikipedia).
Steaming okra is easy as, especially if you are already cooking rice. When you are in the "in-in" stage where most of the water has evaporated and it's time to cover the pot and lower the heat, just place the okra on top of the rice. You can do the same with the rice cooker method, by putting the okra in when the cooker switches to "heat" mode.
However, it may be something I can never grow to like :-(
