My mother was very thrifty, with a husband and five children to feed. We raised a garden every year and nothing went to waste! At the first and last of the growing season, there often wasn't enough of any one thing to fix for all of us, so she would use whatever vegetables there were on the vines and mix them together. Here is a recipe she used, and one of my favorites!

serves 6-8
prep time 10 Min

  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 lg

  • 10
    okra, fresh

    onion, bell pepper, and garlic cloves

How To Make

    Add to olive oil and cook on medium heat about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Cover the pan to make sure vegetables are done! Leave off lid and turn up heat last 2 or 3 minutes if you like crispier. Best cooked in a cast iron skillet, but you may use another pan or a wok. Serve!
