My second batch of okra needed to be eaten but my cherry tomatoes also needed to be used. What to do? Why not try them together in a recipe..
I chopped the okra and half an onion.
Here are two bowls of my tomatoes ripe this week. Sun Gold Cherry and Juliet tomatoes. By the way these Sun Gold tomatoes are delicious. they are smaller than a regular cherry tomato so easy to pop in your mouth for a snack without tomato juice squirting everywhere..
cut the Sun Golds in half and the Juliets in quarters. Juliet tomatoes are like a roma and firm but smaller in size.
Meanwhile I seared the okra in a lightly oiled pan on high heat till edges were starting to brown, turning occasionally to keep them from burning. I removed the okra and sauteed the chopped onions. I added the okra back in the pan after the onions were translucent along with the chopped tomatoes. I turned down the heat to medium added salt and pepper and a dash of white balsamic vinegar and a couple of squirts of catsup. (I would have used tomato paste but didn't want to open a whole can for this recipe and I was out of tomato paste in a tube). The okra and tomatoes were delicious together.
Tomorrow I'll be at the farmer's market in the morning. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
