What’s for lunch today? The short answer is vegetarian aka Okra with onions and tomatoes, a vegetarian tagine. A simple, light, yet fulfilling recipe that we cook frequently.

Moroccan Okra Tagine Preparation

INGREDIENTS:

– 1.5 lbs of okra (we used freshly frozen okra as it is already cleaned and cut. Also, the beach condo has a small kitchen and we try to keep things simple)
– 3 medium tomatoes (we used organic as it was on sale and less expensive than regular vine ripe ones)
– 2 small onions
– 1/4 bunch of parsley
– 1/4 tsp of turmeric
– 1/4 tsp of ginger
– 1/4 tsp of black pepper
– 1 tsp of salt
– 5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

That’s it. Really!

PREP:

Clean and cut off the head of okra (see photo), dice tomatoes, thinly slice onions, and chop parsley. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and add all ingredients including the olive oil (see above). Mix it all together and place it in a tagine, a Rifi Tagine in this case.

Take some of the larger okras and neatly arrange them in a circular fanned fashion to add a pleasant visual component to the tagine and add a 1/4 cup of water.

Set it and Forget it (for only 45 minutes)

Set the temperature at LO-MED, a setting between low and medium on most stove tops (or a quarter of the way between off and high). Time cooking for 45 minutes and check on the tagine. If sauce is reduced dry, add 2 tbsp of water and let cook for 2 minutes, otherwise, check tenderness of okra and onions. If cooked turn the stove off and let it sit for a few minutes before serving.

Watch it sizzle…

B’saha!

Tadah!

    I tried the recipe and found it very easy to make and delicious enough that everyone wanted more than I made. I tried using other vegetables like carrots and brussel sprouts and found the recipe to very adaptable.
