Classic Okra and Tomatoes Recipe
Okra and tomatoes are a centuries-old pairing. It's a remarkable union of late-summer flavors that comes from using peak-season produce: vibrant fresh-picked okra and plump ripe tomatoes still firm enough to hold their shape when simmered. To minimize okra's infamous textural issues, take care not to cut the stem end so closely that the pod is severed.
