“Okra and tomatoes are a classic combo. This is a delicious, spicy variation that's really easy to make. I made this often in college and turned my okra-skeptical roommate into a fan. I like this served over brown rice, but it's also great thinned out into a stew.”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Saute onion for a few minutes until it begins to soften.
  3. Add garlic, jalapeno, and cumin and cook 1-2 minutes longer. Don't brown the garlic or it will get bitter.
  4. Add okra, tomatoes, and tomato juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. You can add water to make a soupier dish, or leave it fairly dry. I add 1/4-1/2 cup.
  6. Cover and cook 5-10 minutes. Okra should soften and the juices will become quite thick.
