    1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Add the green pepper; cook and stir until tender. Drain the tomatoes, reserving juice, and pour them into the frying pan. Season with thyme, parsley, cayenne, salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes over medium heat.
    2. Add the okra, and pour in enough of the reserved juice from the tomatoes to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until okra is tender.
