Meatless Monday – Charred Okra with Tomatoes

OKRA, Love it or Leave it? Where do you come down on this divisive vegetable? There doesn’t seem to be room for ambivalence here. People seem to love it or hate it. I was not a fan until I tried this recipe which sears the okra in a screaming hot pan. Even those who are not fans of okra may change their minds with this one which combines smokey okra, charred onion and garlic, along with sweet wilted tomato and a sprinkling of fresh herbs and lemon zest. You just may be pleasantly surprised!
