Wild Mushroom & Okra Stir-Fry {Recipe}

So my Mother-In-Law and I were combing through our fridge one night while looking for veggies to combine in a dish for our dinner. We ended up making this delicious dish with okra and wild mushrooms. I definitely did NOT expect it to taste this good, but wow, did this simple dish really make our taste buds sing! It’s simply okra, wild mushrooms, salt, and ginger.

FYI: Most of the groceries we purchase are from Tesco, so most of my recipes will feature produce and amounts either from there or the local Asian store.


Okra and Wild Mushroom Stir-Fry

  • Time: 20 minutes
  • Serves: 4


  • 2x 175g Okra
  • 2x 100g Tesco Finest Wild Mushrooms
  • 2 tsp crushed ginger
  • Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Sunflower oil


  1. Prepare vegetables. Wash and completely dry okra. Remove tops and slice it at a slight angle. Clean off wild mushrooms and piece into equal sizes. The mushrooms are so soft that you can literally do so with your fingertips.
  2. Add a little oil to a hot non-stick skillet and sautee the okra. Do not season with salt at this stage, or it will cause your vegetable to release water, which will be counter productive to the frying process. It is important to properly cook your okra, otherwise the sticky residue inside will become gooey, and your dish will be ruined.
  3. When the okra is well fried and crunchy/blackened in some areas, remove from pan. Place on a bowl for later use.
  4. Add more oil to the hot pan, then add the wild mushroom. As it starts to cook, add the ginger (crush with mortar and pestle). The ginger will cause lots of liquid to release into the pan. Cooking the mushrooms on high heat will cook the mushrooms and reduce the liquid fairly quickly, but be sure not to burn the dish.
  5. Once the liquid has completely evaporated, add the okra and cook together in the pan for a few more minutes. Season the dish with a sprinkle of Himalayan pink salt. Give it another quick toss and remove from pan to serve immediately.
  6. Serve with steamed rice and other side dishes.

I always enjoy experimenting with different vegetables to create new dishes when we get tired of eating common greens like spinach and kale.

I hope you enjoy this creation as much as we do. Happy Eats!
