This is not my recipe, but Im going to do my best to remember how she did it.
1 Onion chopped up
1 clove of minced garlic
4 C. Chopped tomato
3-4 C. Chopped okra ( Bite size, dont cut them up too small. Or leave them whole. This is your life, OWN IT.)
Saute onions in a conservative amount of oil (As we want our recipes to remain healthy)
Add garlic to sautéed onions, bloom just for a few seconds( Garlic will burn, and then the taste will not be pleasant)
Add in fresh tomatoes, cut up for faster cooking.
As soon as the tomatoes have broken down into a saucey type situation, go ahead and throw in your okra that you have cut up into bite sized pieces. Or not, do what you want, I don’t mind!
Cook this together until the okra is soft and the tomato has reduced.
*If for some reason, your tomatoes evaporate quickly and you find yourself with not enough cooking liquid, you can use chicken/veggie/beef stock or Just water will do. You might have to be more heavy handed with the seasonings at the end.
SEASON! With whatever you like. Salt and Pepper are my friends, but go Buckwild. You’re eating it, not me!
