Creole Okra and Tomatoes

Creole Okra and Tomatoes

This dish would still be authentic with or without the corn, depending on your preference.  Celery and/ or bell pepper could also be added along with the onion for extra flavor.

-1 yellow onion, diced
-4 cloves garlic, minced
-1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
-1 Tbsp sugar
-1 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-1/2 tsp dried thyme and/ or basil
-1 (15 oz) can of corn
-1 lb frozen sliced okra, thawed

Saute onion oven medium heat until soft (about 5 minutes).  Add garlic, cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds).  Add tomatoes, sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and thyme/ basil.  Stir well to combine, simmer 3 minutes.  Add okra and corn, cover and simmer until okra begins to soften (5-10 minutes).
