Roasted Okra

Recipe & Image Credit: Allrecipes

Stewed okra is great, but for a little variety, we like to roast ours from time to time. This is so simple and easy and the okra tends to not be nearly as gummy or slimy when roasted. Chopped tomato makes a great addition when we have some handy.

Ingredients

  • 18 fresh okra pods, sliced 1/3 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper, or to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Arrange the okra slices in one layer on a foil lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
