Sylvia's Restaurant Tomatoes, Okra & Corn
Queen of soul food. Triple delicious. Great side dish, soup mix, or over rice! Heart healthy. No cholesterol. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce your risk of heart disease, a disease associated with many factors. When I was growing up in Hemingway, S.C., there was always plenty of okra growing in our garden, ready to cut. You can pick okra every other day, that's how fast it grows. Small, young okra pods, not much longer than your middle finger, are the best for cooking. My mother had me helping her in the kitchen at a very early age. She taught me to cook okra with tomatoes and corn because they go together so well - like they were made for each other. I use this as a base for soups and stews, but my family loves it as a side dish. - Love, Sylvia. Already cooked. Heat and eat.
