Mama Loves Food

Roasted Okra.

Roasted Okra is absolutely my favorite food discovery this year. I always heard that okra was weird and slimy and the only preparation I knew of was battered and fried.  Which, I love fair food as much as the next gal, but it's not something I would go out of my way to make.  (I reserve that honor for pickles).  

And to be completely honest?  Until this year, I wasn't even sure what okra looked like. But a girlfriend heard I was starting a garden and brought me a pile of seeds.  Some of which?  Okra!  So when it started growing, I had to figure out what to do!  One day I threw it on the baking sheet with my broccoli, and I've been smitten ever since!

Roasted Okra, Ingredients:

  • okra, sliced crosswise
  • olive oil, or other fat (in the pictures, I just used a bit of bacon grease that was leftover in the pan)
  • salt

Roasted Okra, Directions:

  1. Drizzle a light coating of oil over a baking sheet, and lay the okra on top.
  2. Roast at 475 degrees for ten minutes, then toss a bit with a spatula and roast 5 minutes more.
  3. Sprinkle generously with salt and ENJOY!
