Okra over Rice
A neighbor suggested this use for okra. I tried it and my whole family – even the 16-year-old son who is picky about vegetables – liked it.
okra, topped and sliced hot peppers, chopped
sweet frying peppers, sliced and seeded onions, sliced
garlic, minced or smashed fresh tomatoes, sliced in half
olive oil salt and pepper to taste
Place all the prepared vegetables in a large skillet with the olive oil. Saute over a medium heat until the vegetables are soft. When the tomatoes begin to soften, you can slip off the skins to remove them. As the vegetables cook, they create a wonderful sauce which we serve over rice. My daughter made a variation of this by sprinkling fried bacon over the top. Delightful!
