Okra and Tomatoes
Notes: Add white beans for protein. Trimming okra just means cutting off the stem close to the rim.
★★★★ Prep Time: 30 min | Cook Time: 30 min | Makes: 4 to 6 servings | Difficulty: Easy
1 pound okra, rinsed and trimmed
1 chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon minced garlic
5-6 chopped roma tomato
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon freshly ground or black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 can white beans (optional)
Cut each okra pod in half lengthwise and set aside. If there are any pods longer than 4 inches, cut them in half crosswise and then lengthwise.
Heat onions along with the salt and cook until they begin to soften. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the tomatoes and bring the mixture to a boil. Decrease the heat to low and add the ginger, pepper, cardamom and okra. Stir to combine. Cook, covered for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, taste and adjust the seasoning as desired. Serve immediately. If adding beans add them about halfway through the cook time.
