Stewed Okra and Tomatoes

Serves:  4-6 people


3-4 Tbsp hickory smoked olive oil

1 small onion (red, yellow, white, or Vidalia)

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 pound okra, sliced OR 1 bag frozen okra (16 oz)

1 cup broth of your choice (you can substitute with water)

2 large tomatoes, skin removed and coarsely chopped OR a 1-14 ½ can of diced tomatoes with liquid

½ creole seasoning 

¼ tsp black pepper 

Smoked finishing salt


In a skillet, heat your olive oil over medium-low heat.  Add the onion and sautè for 2 minutes, then add the garlic to sautè for another minute.  

Once the onions and garlic are somewhat translucent, add the tomatoes with juice, okra, and broth.  Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 30-40 minutes.  

Sprinkle the smoked finishing salt before serving.  Serve alone, over rice, or with your favorite bread.
