  • 1 cup fresh-cut okra

  4. Add the fresh-cut okra to the saucepan and stir well to combine with the other ingredients.

  5. Sprinkle the smoked paprika, dried thyme, dried oregano, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and black pepper over the okra mixture. Stir to evenly distribute the seasonings.

  6. Reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let the okra and tomatoes stew for about 15-20 minutes, or until the okra is tender.

  7. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed, adding more salt or pepper according to your preference.

  8. Once the okra is cooked to your desired tenderness, remove the saucepan from heat.

  9. Transfer the stewed okra and tomatoes to a serving bowl. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

  10. Serve the stewed okra and tomatoes as a side dish or over cooked rice or quinoa for a complete meal.
