Okra and cashews are central to Brazilian cuisine; here the vegetable is lightly sautéed with slivers of garlic and tossed with the nuts for a great crunch.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 pounds small okra
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  5. 1/2 cup salted roasted cashews, chopped
  6. 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, plus lime wedges, for serving
  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the okra, season with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook over moderate heat until softened and fragrant, 3 minutes. Stir in the cashews and lime zest. Transfer the okra to a platter, garnish with the lime wedges and serve.
