Seems like you can never find small, fresh okra at the market—the ones they usually sell have grown way too big, and are tough and fibrous—so we often rely on frozen. But surprise, surprise, we found three little cardboard cartons of “just right” sized okra (3–4 inches long) waiting for us at the grocery store. We made a rich vegetable stew of chickpeas, tomatoes, and okra and added lots of chopped fresh parsley and mint a few minutes before serving to brighten all the deep flavors.
