Sautéed Okra and Tomatoes

2 Oct

Okra and Tomatoes is as Southern dish as you can find. Usually okra and tomatoes are stewed, and okra is slimy. Sautéed vegetables always have nice flavor, and this recipe is no exception. This is not your grandma’s okra and tomato recipe, but I think she might even approve of it.

  • 3/4 pound fresh okra, thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 green tomato, chopped
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 gloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  •  olive oil

Coat a large skillet with 2 tbs of olive oil. Over medium high heat, sauté the okra and shallots 8-10 minutes. Set a side. Add 1 tbs of olive oil  to skillet. Add the garlic and tomatoes, cook about 2 minutes. Combine the tomatoes with okra and  the herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
