Story Behind this Recipe
When making miso soup, I always save just a small amount. I wanted to make a bonito and soy sauce flavored boiled vegetable dish, but instead I made a mashed tofu dish with okra. Since it came out refreshing and delicious, I decided to post the recipe.
Be careful not to boil the okra for too long. To brine the okra, sprinkle with salt, and roll them on a cutting board. You can scrape off the fuzzy hairs if they bother you, but I didn't this time. This is a very mildly flavored dish.
