Okra is my favorite green vegetable. Chronic illnesses have made dietary changes a must in our household. My husband has had to eat more vegetables and fruit. Boredom is one of my problems, so I play around and come up with different ways to cook the same vegetables that we like. This is one of our favorites.

Instructions Checklist
  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Add butter and melt over medium-high heat. Add okra, corn, and onion; saute until barely tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and continue to saute until all vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes more. Lower heat and add half-and-half; stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Notes:

You can vary the portion size just by the amount of corn, okra, and onion you use - go by sight and use equal portions of each. Still pour out 1/4 cup half-and-half, but eyeball it and slowly add little by little until you get the suitable amount (not too dry but not too runny).

You may also add additional vegetables such as grape tomatoes cut in half, but don't overdo it. Adding too many flavors will overpower the dish. You don't want more than 5 different flavors at the most.
