Ingredients

    3 tbsp Olive Oil
    1 tbsp turmeric
    2 tsp cumin
    0.5 tsp cayenne pepper
    3 cups washed and sliced okra
    1 pint cherry tomatoes halved - or substitute 2 regular tomatoes diced
    1 cup frozen corn
    1 tsp sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 tbsp cider vinegar
    .5 cup water

Directions

Warm olive oil in a large skillet over Medium Low heat. Add the spices, adjusting to your taste. Let the spices warm up and toast in the oil for a couple minutes.

Turn heat the Medium and add okra. Let okra cook ten minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking or burning. You'll start to see the okra get "slime-y", don't worry! That's going to help thicken the sauce and it'll be delicious!

Add cherry tomatoes, corn, sugar, salt, and cider vinegar. Stir in to combine. Add up to 0.5 cup water to create a sauce from the veggie juices, oil and spices. Cook ten more minute covered. Check that okra is soft and serve.

Enjoy over brown rice. Makes a great side for any fish or chicken, too. Makes six 1 cup servings or 8 smaller servings.
