Ingredients
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen sliced okra, or 1 pound fresh okra, stems trimmed and sliced
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Essence, recipe follows
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Special equipment: pressure cooker
Directions

Combine all ingredients in a pressure cooker and bring to a simmer over high heat. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 10 minutes. Uncover and stir well. Cover the pot again and continue to cook at medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes longer, or until the vegetables are just tender.

Note: This dish is even better if made a day in advance or if left to sit awhile after cooking to allow the flavors to blend.
