Greek Okra & Tomato Stew ( Bamies Yachni )

Tonight, we enjoyed the fruits of Saturday's bulk-cooking labors. I pulled an entree out of the freezer & heated it, made a salad, and baked a loaf of foccacia to serve with tahini dip. Since I had made the entree on Saturday, I had free time this evening to make 8 pounds of bread dough, bake a loaf of bread, fix a salad, and relax with a cup of coffee while surfing the net. All in the time I would normally have spent preparing the entree.

This is what we had:

Bamies Yachni
6 cups Yachni sauce (1 batch)
3 12oz bags frozen okra - not thawed (You can use either whole or sliced okra - I prefer a combination)
1 scant teaspoon sugar
Cook in slow cooker on high 3 hours
Or, simmer in covered dutch oven/stock pot, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Frozen Okra for the recipe

Going into slow cooker - notice the brighter color before cooking
Finished Cooking, and ready for the freezer - notice the change in color when done

Tip for serving Omnivores: This is another dish that can make a main dish for a vegan, or a side dish for a meat and potatoes meal.


  1. Anna, Could you cook this recipe on low in the slow cooker too? ~Christine

  2. Absolutely! I often do. Give it about 3-4 hours on high. Thanks so much for visiting : )


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
