  • 1 Big Tomato

It’s an easy, quick and fresh starter or side dish.

I cut the tomato in four pieces. I help myself with a spoon and remove gently the fleshy interior without broke the tomato wedges skin (usually I make appetizers with the tomato skin).

I cut the okras into slices.

Next I add the tomato heart, parsley, black olives and sunflower seeds. When I eat this starter, the okra slime texture mixed with the pulp of tomato is minimized.

The seed pods meeting the sunflower seeds became more crunchy and the flavor of the black olive with the okra skin have a fresh taste. Raw Okra with Tomato Heart can be an healthy starter or side dish eaten during warm and hot weather because is fresh and light.
