Okra and tomatoes


4 slices bacon
1 onion, chopped
3 cups sliced okra
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a heavy bottomed saute pan over medium-high heat, add the bacon. Render the bacon until crisp. Remove from pan and reserve. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 3 minutes.

Add the okra and tomatoes, making sure to add the reserved juice from the tomatoes to the saute pan. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 15 minutes.

Notes: If needed, add water or chicken stock if the pan becomes too dry.

Can substitute EVOO for bacon and vegetable broth for chicken broth as well as adding a bell pepper and garlic. May serve as is or over brown rice.  May add chicken or sausage.
