If somebody asks me in the future what I craved for during my pregnancy and I ate in large quantities my answer will come as a surprise: lentil stew, soups, baked okra and salads! I remember one day I had 2 dishes of lentils and my belly was really bloated. I thought I would explode! You see all this kind of food is rich in fiber and cause bloating. Considering the fact that I am pregnant and I already have a bloated belly, you can imagine what that means!

I fell in love with this dish at first bite! I am a huge okra fun and decided to cook them in a different way (I always bake them greek style). So I skipped tomato and added a spicy touch. The combo of smoked paprika and turmeric is divine! You should try them! Kisses and hugs, friends!
