800grfresh ripe tomatoesdiced (can be substituted with chopped canned)
2-3chopped garlic cloves
2medium sized red onions thinly sliced
1sweet red pepperdiced
70mlextra virgin olive oil + 10 ml to add at the end
salt - pepper
Preheat the oven at 180°C.
Put a large saucepan on medium high heat. Add 4 tablespoons olive oil and sauté the okra.
Add the onions, salt and stir for a few minutes. Add the vinegar and stir. Take off the heat.
Empty the okra into a baking tray. Mix in the garlic, red pepper, oregano, parsley, tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the water, cover and bake for about 35-40 minutes.
Uncover, adjust seasoning if necessary, pour in the remaining 10 ml of olive oil and return to the oven (uncovered) for another 10-15 minutes until nice and caramelized!
Remove from the oven and let stand for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with fresh bread and feta!
Note: If you are using fresh okra, you need to clean them, wash them, pat dry them. Then for a better texture I recommend you to put them in a tray with salt and some vinegar and lay them in the sun for about an hour.
