Here's the recipe/method ...
1 - 2 quarts of canned tomatoes
1 quart of chopped, sauteed okra
Cayenne pepper pods to taste
Tomato paste to thicken if you like a thicker soup (optional) Use the amount that gives you the desired thickness
(If you don't have canned tomatoes, you can use tomato paste and water to make the liquid for the soup. I think it's 3 cans of water to one can of tomato paste. You can also use tomato juice and tomato paste.)
Mix all together, bring to a boil and let simmer for at least an hour.
Serve over a bed of cooked rice or serve it as a bowl of soup without rice. Either way it's good!
