A new and 'healthier' version of traditional Southern-style veggies---big on taste, but these veggies are not breaded or deep-fried! From Southern Living.

- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 2 large tomatoes, seeded and thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons pepper
- 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granule
- Cut okra in half lengthwise.
