1 Pound Whole Fresh Okra (Stems removed then cut on a bias).

1 or 2 Cloves of fresh Garlic minced.

1 Whole Tomato diced.

Sea Salt and Ground Pepper to taste.

In a medium sauce pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Allow olive oil to heat, (medium heat)  about 2 minutes. Add fresh okra and minced garlic.

How to Prevent Okra (Lady Fingers) from Becoming Slimy During Cooking:

You can achieve this by giving the Okra (Lady Fingers) a vinegar bath before cooking. First, pour half a cup of vinegar into a bowl for every pound of Okra (Lady Fingers) you plan to cook. Gently with your fingers rotate the Okra in the vinegar to coat them. Leave for 30 minutes to soak. Remove Okra (Lady Fingers) from the vinegar and rinse well. Dry and prepare the recipe.
