Like onions and garlic, and peas and corn, okra and tomatoes are probably the two vegetables that are the most made to go together. Throw in some sweet corn, maybe a little pork or shrimp and you've got yourself a whole meal. Always found on Cajun and southern tables, cooked down smothered okra and tomatoes loaded with seasonings and anything else you feel like adding is a belly warming taste of good stuff. Fresh is best but frozen will work just as good.
