Okra in Olive Oil

(Zeytinyagli Bamya)

Okra in Olive Oil
375 g small size okra, frozen or in a jar, gently rinsed and drained
50 ml extra virgin olive oil (half for cooking, half for after cooking)
1 or 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup diced tomato, canned or 1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 cup hot water

Place all the ingredients except 25 ml olive oil in a medium pot. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes at medium-low heat. Pour the rest of the olive oil all over it.

After the "Okra in Olive Oil" cool down, place them on a serving dish. Keep it in the refrigerator. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

2 servings.

*You can use fresh or frozen okra to cook any okra dishes. Just cooking time takes a little bit longer, like 5 more minutes. You should choose the small ones to cook any okra dishes:)
