Or a hearty, ratatouille-like, vegetarian meal. The okra & tomatoes blend together into a rich flavor & there are no worries about that rumored slime.
Okra is one of those greens that is so good for you. Learn to love it & it will supply you with Vitamin B6 & folic acid.
- 2 cups Okra, trimmed & cut into pieces
- 2 TBSp Cornmeal
- 2 TBSp Butter
- 1-2 cups Corn, fresh or frozen
- 1, 14 oz. can diced Tomatoes
- 1 cup Water
- S & P
In a large bowl, coat the okra with the cornmeal.
Melt the butter on Medium-High in a large skillet. Add the okra in & brown in on all sides... Add in the corn, tomatoes & water, S&P... Bring to a simmer, then turn down the heat to Low/ Medium-Low. Cook until the sauce is thick, reduced down, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
