    Thanks for posting this! Some say okra is "slimy." Well, maybe it is when it's undercooked, but if you follow this recipe it won't be. It will be tender, rich, and yummy. By the way, if you fancy embellishing this a bit, try adding a couple of bay leaves to the onions, as well as some thyme, some oregano, and the juice of a lemon along with the tomatoes and water.
