Greek Bamies

This is a very easy recipe consisting of okra and tomatoes. It is part of what Greeks call "ladera," which is basically the name for any vegetable cooked in olive oil. If you don't like okra, you can make this recipe with green beans as well.

Serves 3-4

What you need:

3 cups fresh okra, stems removed
5 tomatoes, diced
1 large onion, diced
1.5-2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup olive oil

In a large pan, sauté the onion in the olive oil for around 7 minutes on medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes and sauté for another 5 minutes. Add the okra and the spices, cover, and simmer (stirring occasionally) on low-medium heat for around 40 minutes.
