Okra with Tomatoes
More garden goodness! We had so many Okra and Cherry Tomatoes that I looked for a recipe to use them both up. I always make my Okra in the oven or breaded and fried but I wanted to try something new. On http://www.FoodNetwork.com I found this fabulous recipe! It was so easy and quick to make and what a great taste with no slime! This is a must try recipe if you love Okra like I do. Even my husband loved it and he said he doesn’t like Okra…..until today!
In a large frying pan over medium heat, add the oil and cook until hot.
Add the smashed garlic, cooking until golden brown.
Add the okra and onion.
Salt and pepper to your own taste.
Cook until the okra is tender about 10-12 minutes
stirring occasionally but carefully.
Add cherry tomatoes.
Cook just until the tomatoes burst, about 3 more minutes.
Add a splash of vinegar, gently toss and serve.

Looks delicious Diane!
We do this at home, okra with tomatoes. But in a different way. Great taste 👍
May I ask how you fix yours? I love trying different ways!
I have not had okra in years. After seeing this tempting recipe I think it might be time to get some!
Oh you really have to try this! It was so good!!! Thanks Christy!
I love okra, this looks so colorful & beautiful.
Thank you so much Megala! This was so good!
Thank you sir!
Such a visual delight.I too cook okras very frequently,but not the way you do.Loved your recipe.
This was the first time trying it this way and it was fabulous! Usually I put cornmeal on the slices and fry. Thanks!
Love how fresh this looks. Yum!
Fresh from the garden! Thank you Ella!
We have loads of okra b/c it’s one of the few crops that take our intense summer heat in TX, but we usually end up feeding it to the pigs! I’ll definitely try this recipe, but what is the key to ‘no slime’ okra, do you know? I heard before the trick is to not cook it too long, but in this recipe it’s getting well-cooked looks like. Thanks for the inspiration and any thoughts.
With this recipe you cut the okra in half lengthwise and there wasn’t a bit of slime! Adding the splash of vinegar really made this good! I always cook mine longer to get rid of the slime no matter what way I cook them. I absolutely can not eat it slimy and I LOVE okra! Give this a try and you will have to give the pigs something else!
So colorful and pretty. It looks yummy.
Thank you one of my new favorite ways to make Okra!
That looks interesting. I’ve always smothered okra down with shrimp.
OMG I never thought of that!
I never thought of doing it any other way. 😒
