Nadia Roden says her mother taught her not to cut off too much of the stem end; if you do, the okra collapses and the gooey seeds come out.

  1. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  3. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 2 pounds small okra (see Note), trimmed
  5. One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, drained and chopped
  6. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 teaspoon sugar
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 1/4 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large enameled cast-iron casserole. Add the onions and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the okra and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until well coated with the flavorings, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, lemon juice and sugar and season with salt and pepper. Simmer over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the okra is tender and the sauce is thickened, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the parsley and season with salt. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
Make Ahead The prepared okra can be refrigerated overnight. Reheat gently. Notes You can use frozen small okra in this recipe.
