Who loves sweet summertime? Who loves the Farmer’s Market? If you answered yes to either of those, then the recipe below is a must try! One of the goals I had for going to the Farmer’s Market this past weekend was to get something new and find a recipe to go along. A little adventure if you will. You see, I’m a plan kinda gal. Usually before going to the grocery or market, I have lists upon lists of what to get. This week I decided to live life dangerously and fly by the seat of my pants!
Let me tell you, I lived life so dangerously that I picked out okra to be my veggie of choice. And of course I quickly thought, how the heck will I prepare this?! Since I’m a Weightwatcher, I started out by typing okra in the search in the app, and BAM, I found it – Okra, Corn & Tomato Saute! First of all, I can’t do anything 100% by the book, so I made some changes and used my fresh veggies instead of frozen. Then I added a couple jalapeños, because I like it hot!
This was the perfect sweet summertime side to add to our backyard bbq (even though there isn’t a backyard). We grilled some burgers and then grabbed a couple of beers and listened to John Butler Trio out on the deck. Finally, we had perfection!
