  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet with a tightfitting cover. Add onion and cook over medium

  3. heat until translucent. While onion cooks, remove caps and cut okra crosswise into 1-inch pieces.

  4. Add okra to pan all at once, shake pan or stir gently to mix with onion, and immediately add vinegar and

  5. 1/4 cup water. Cover and immediately reduce heat. (The goal is to steam the okra gently until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes.)

  6. When okra is tender, push to one side of the pan and increase heat to medium-high. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and the garlic, stirring gently until fragrant. Add tomatoes, salt, sugar, black pepper, pepper flakes and basil. Heat for less than 1 minute, just long enough to heat the tomatoes through, then gently fold together with the okra. Taste and adjust for seasoning with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
