Add and cook until soft:
1-2 T. veggie oil
1 onion, chopped
1-3 cloves of garlic, minced
4 C. chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce (can be 2 cans diced tomatoes or tomato sauce)
4 C. Okra fresh or frozen chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. crushed red pepper ( This is very spicy. Half it, if you want less spice)
Simmer 20 minutes.
2 C. Fresh or frozen Spinach, or other dark greens, chopped (I used Swiss chard)
Simmer 5 minutes.
Serve over hot rice of Nshima (en-SHEE-ma) which is an African cornmeal porridge.
This recipe is quick and easy. The Okra does not get slimy.
