Recipe and Cooking Techniques: Sauteed Tomatoes, Sausages, and Okra

Serves 4

Hands-On Time: 25 min.

Total Time: 25 min.

Ingredients

2          Tablespoons olive oil

6          ounces andouille sausage, thinly sliced

½ lb.     fresh okra, halved lengthwise

2           garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 lb.      cherry tomatoes

fresh cilantro, chopped for sprinkling

kosher salt and black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Cook the sausage, okra, and garlic until the sausage is browned and the okra is almost tender, 9 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes and cook until beginning to burst, 4 to 6 minutes; sprinkle with cilantro and season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Tip

Okra gets gummy when overcooked.  In this recipe, remove it from the heat when it is still bright green and slightly firm to the bite.
