  6. Finally add the pinch of brown sugar and the fresh coriander, mix again and leave the okra to boil for around 2-3 minutes
  7. Then shift your okra into a tajin and place it in the oven for a duration of 30-45 minutes depending on your oven’s heating capacity


Quinoa Preparation Steps:

To prepare the quinoa use twice as much water as quinoa, then cook uncovered until the quinoa has absorbed all the water.

  1. Rinse the quinoa
  2. Combine the rinsed quinoa and water in a pan

Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat and let the quinoa simmer until it absorbs all the water (10-20 min)
