Okra and Tomatoes

Okra and Tomatoes

This time of year is great for okra. Look for small green pods and steer clear of bruising. This is a great simple recipe that is just so good. It is "approved" for vegans and vegetarians and even those who are omnivores because it is just so delicious. Enjoy!


2 cups canned chopped tomatoes

1 lb okra, cut crosswise into .5 in. slices

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 onion, chopped

1 tsp sugar


Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy nonreactive skillet over medium high heat. Sauté onion 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add okra and sauté another 5-6 minutes, or until okra begins to brown. Stir in tomatoes, sugar and salt to taste. Cover skillet and simmer over low heat 20-30 minutes or until thickened.

Serves 4
