Okra is a classic southern vegetable, and it makes a perfect go-to side dish. Personally, I like my okra more crispy than slimy, so roasting it is a wonderful way to go. Cutting it longwise also helps to give it a bit more crunch and feels like a good fry substitution.
It's so simple and tasty, you'll have a new favorite way to enjoy okra! Or, you can always go with the classic Fried Okra if you want to stay true to its roots.
Cut okra lengthwise, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper. Heat oven to 400 degrees and bake your okra until it's browned to your liking. I tend to like mine crispier than most!
