put the vegatables in and add the okra on top. now just leave it alone for 10 to 15 minutes. (feel free to use fresh okra. it'd probably be better.)
When the hash is almost as brown as you like it, I drain the oil out and let it finish cooking for the last 3-5 minutes with just the oil that's already on the vegetables. I drain it because I leave it in the pan to serve. if you'd rather serve it in something else, you can drain it then (whatever)
done. add salt to taste.
sadly, none of the vegetables used were from our garden. but soon.
