Ingredients

  • 2

    cups fresh green peas

  • 1

    tablespoon canola oil

  • 1

    thick slice of bacon, finely diced

  • 1

    small onion, finely chopped

  • ½

    pound okra, sliced ½ inch thick

  • 3

    medium tomatoes—peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped

  • 3

    ears of corn, kernels cut off

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • ¼

    cup slivered basil leaves

Directions

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the peas until tender, 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup of the cooking liquid. In a deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderately high heat, until browned. Add the onion and cook until just softened. Add the okra and cook for 8 minutes. Add the tomatoes and corn and cook until the tomatoes break down. Add the peas with the cooking liquid and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the butter and basil; serve.
