Preheat oven to 400° F. Bake okra until lightly brown on unbleached parchment paper that has been sprayed with a bit of oil. Remove from heat and set aside.


In a medium, ceramic skillet sauté sliced onions in the oil until they start to become transparent. Add tomatoes and spices and mix. Incorporate the baked okra to the tomato-onion mixture and cook for 25 minutes on low heat.
