This is a great side for fried catfish!

Creole Ratatouille

2 Tbsp butter
1 & ½ cups sliced onions
2 cups fresh sliced baby okra (about 1 pound)
1 large tomato, sliced
4 drops Tabasco
½ tsp dried basil
¼ tsp chives
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp sugar

Melt the butter in a large skillet of sauté pan over low heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and beginning to brown. Add the sliced okra and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Cook slowly, stirring frequently, for five minutes longer, then cover the skillet tightly, lower the heat, and cook for 10 minutes. Serve very hot
