Okra is in season around these parts of Texas. The most common okra recipes involve frying it up. And while I love the salty crunch of good fried okra, it's not my favorite favorite. Okra cooked with stewed tomatoes and onions is what I crave this time of year. My Memaw called it 'Okra Gumbo'. Is that what you call this too?
HERE'S ALL IT TAKES
- 1 pint fresh okra, cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes with liquid
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup diced yellow onion
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Add all the ingredients to a medium sauce pan, cook over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until onions are soften and okra is tender.
Serve hot on the side!
