Easy stewed Squash, Tomatoes, Peppers and Okra
But it tastes glorious when it's done! And all but the peppers were from my garden or someone else's.
I first learned about the idea of stewing okra and tomatoes while living in South Carolina. This is kind of my own little recipe, I guess, so here goes:
Easy Stewed Squash, Tomato, Peppers and Okra
*Now you could omit any of these veggies you didn't want and you could also add onions or any other soft veggie like green beans or spinach even.
Equal parts cut-up okra, tomato (with skin peeled off. It's super easy if you cut an X at the bottom, boil for 30 seconds, then put in an ice bath. Skin falls off easily), green peppers, and yellow or zucchini squash.
Put them all in a pot and add a little bit of water, tomato juice or even beer (that's what I did, LOL)! Just a little bit of liquid to boil them in.
Add whatever seasoning you like. I put in salt, pepper and creole, but you could use garlic, paprika, season salt, Head Country (my favorite) or herbs like oregano, rosemary, thyme. Even a splash or two of hot sauce.
Boil slowly for about 10 to 15 minutes until everything is soft and the flavors kind of mingle together. You can eat it straight, but I think it's best served over rice or even a baked potato.
