Amazing and Easy Summer Side Dish: Roasted Okra

August 03, 2010


One of my workout friends, Angie, told me about some roasted okra she had recently. I love roasting vegetables, and I love okra so why not? This is so simple, fast and delicious. Even my kids (who I admit are used to fried okra) were fighting over them. Just simply trim the edges of the okra slightly and season with salt, pepper and olive oil. They come out phenomenal!

Roasted Okra

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
2 pounds roasted whole okra, ends slightly trimmed
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 425F.

2. Place okra on a lightly greased baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle olive oil.

3. Bake in preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes or until okra are tender.

I had roasted okra at Bottega the other night. It was amazing and not the least bit slimy!

These were so good and healthy. I couldn't stop eating them. They were like eating popcorn. I can't wait til you make them again.
