Growing up with Grand Parents who lived off the land in Southern Louisiana, we had a lot of fresh vegetables. Nothing is more comforting in my book than smothered okra and tomatoes.

My Grand Mother always started hers by browning the onions in bacon drippings, but I tried to make mine a little healtier.

I like this dish served as a vegetable side dish or over rice as a main meal. I also like it in my Cajun gumbo, just store a couple of cups into gumbo when it is almost ready to serve and enjoy!
