Braised Okra with Tomatoes Recipe

Braised Okra with Tomatoes Recipes

Ingredients :

1/2lb fresh or frozen okra

1 cup diced onion

2 tsp minced garlic

1/4 cup white wine

1 7-ounce can chopped tomatoes

1 tsp Chinese chili sauce, or 1-2 tsp canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

freshly ground black pepper


Method :

If using fresh okra, rinse in cold water and dry with a towel. Trim off the stalk end. Cut into 1/4 inch slices and set aside.

In a large, nonstick saute pan, braise the onion and garlic in the white wine until tender. Add the okra, tomatoes, and chili sauce and stir well. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, simmer, covered, for 8-10 minutes, or until the okra is just tender. (If using frozen okra, just cook until heated through). Add the lemon juice and zest. Season to taste with pepper and salt

Serves 4

Try this with the Vegetarian Red Bean and Seven-Grain Dirty Rice and/ or corn bread and chipotle chilies for a southwestern treat. To make things easier, you could omit the chili peppers, lemon juice and zest with very good results.
