Okra Stew


Finally Turkish supermarkets are loaded with okra and since it's already reasonably priced, I couldn't resist and had a lovely vegetarian dinner - okra stew and rice and orzo pilaf.

What we need:

400 gr of okra
2 peeled tomatoes
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
parsley and thyme
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil
some water or stock

What we have to do:

1. Remove okra stems and cut it in a bit to save cooking time.
2. Chop onions and garlic and fry them in a pan with some olive oil. Then add chopped tomatoes and okra. Stir carefully.
3. Cook for 5-7 min then add water, salt and pepper, thyme, some parsley and simmer for 10 min. Serve with pilaf garnished with parsley. Easy!!!
