This is a recipe that my sister-in-law made for us during our visit with them in Kansas. I'm not sure where she found the recipe.

How to Make Okra and Tomatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet; Saute garlic in the olive oil for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Saute 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add okra to the skillet mixture. Saute 4-5 minutes
  4. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, sugar and cajun seasoning.
    Simmer until vegetables are crisp tender.
