• Roasted Okra

    Someone gave us a small “mess” of okra this week, and just didn’t want to stand in the kitchen and fry it. Boiled didn’t sound good to me soooo…I decided to try doing something a little different.



    Okra, any amount
    Olive Oil
    Garlic Salt
    Cayenne Pepper


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    1. The bigger pieces I cut as if I were going to fry. The smaller, I used whole.

    2. Then, I tossed in a liberal amount of olive oil and garlic salt.

    3. Of course, I sprinkle everything with cayenne pepper.

    5. If I had been making for me, I probably would have removed after 15 minutes. However, Rickey doesn’t like as much texture to his food so I roasted for 20.

    We both thought it turned out to be delicious.

    Roasted okra has a bit of a soft crunch like fried...and none of the slime of boiled.
