“A yummy vegetarian side dish, easy to make. Taste holds up for leftovers. The use of frozen okra makes this a year-round favorite in our family.” - by SILVERMARIGOLD
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until limp. Add the green pepper; cook and stir until tender. Drain the tomatoes, reserving juice, and pour them into the skillet. Season with thyme, parsley, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes over medium heat.
- Add the frozen okra, and pour in enough of the reserved juice from the tomatoes to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until okra is tender.

"For folks who think or have read that okra is too slimey to enjoy- try this recipe! I found this recipe delicious, a snap to make, and it's really healthy. I used a can of real Italian cherry tomatoe..." See mores, fresh thyme, and added a bit more garlic, and it was wonderful. Okra-phobes, you won't regret trying this! "
"This is as authentic as it comes and I should know because my Creole mamma made this all the time. She would also add a little fresh or frozen shrimp at the end for a slightly different taste. Great..." See more recipe!"
