When I said “Dinners Ready!” the first response I got was “Really? Already?!”
This healthy dish is easy and quick with lots of varied textures and deep flavors. Connect with your inner Ratatouille for this dish just as I did whirling around my kitchen grabbing a little of this and a little of that to create this delicious stew! I served it on top of a pile of hot steaming Jasmine rice.
- 2 1/2 cups okra – I prefer fresh but you can also use frozen
- 1 red onion halved and then sliced
- 1 green and 1 yellow zucchini – cut in half and then sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
- 2 cups mushrooms
- 2 cans of diced tomatoes
- 1/2 red wine – I was drinking Merlot that night so in it went!
- 2 tsp. Mustard Seed
Throw your Okra into the skillet with the Mustard seed and cover. Wait for those babies to start popping, take your cover off and add your onion, sauté for 4 more minutes. Next throw in the zucchini and mushrooms and sauté for another 3-4 minutes. Now add your tomatoes and let it all simmer together. After 10 minutes add your wine and let it simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes. Taste as you go to add salt and pepper. Even if you are super rushed throw all this in the crock pot the night before and let it cook on low all day while you work! Enjoy!!!
