Homestyle Okra

We had this as a side dish at dinner tonight and it was really really good. Almost creamy. Some people don't like okra because it has a "slimy" texture, but this really works with that and tastes so awesome. Serves 6.

1 bag frozen okra (or about 12 chopped)
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped (any color) 
1 onion, chopped
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Put 1/2 cup water in a pot and throw your okra in, cooking on medium for about 10 minutes till tender. Drain.

Spray another pot with nonstick spray, and saute onions and bell pepper, till onions are translucent and pepper is tender. Add your okra and saute together for a minute, and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well, and let simmer for another 10 minutes covered till all flavors are blended and everything is tender.

Serve! Only 1 point per serving! I swear you'll have more than 1 serving, it's that good!

Pile some on your plate!

Served here with  Spicy Salmon Cakes and Yellow Rice
