Okra and Corn with Tomatoes


2 cups small okra pods, left whole or 1/4-inch-thick rounds
3 large fresh ripe, tomatoes seeded and chopped
4 ears corn, remove kernels, about 2 cups
(may use frozen or canned whole kernel, drained)
1 green bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
1 large onion, thinly sliced into rounds
1/2 cup water or chicken stock
2 tablespoons each butter and canola oil
2 bay leaves
