Okra Anyone???

Who would have thought that this California turned Georgia girl would ever like Okra...why in the world would anyone like that weird slimy looking veg from the south??? Thats what I always thought and from talking with some friends I'm not the only one.  But I'm serious when I tell you I have found a new love and can't stop eating the "slimy stuff".  Haha!!  Although don't worry when you cook it like this there is no slime

Once again Fresh Harvest has introduced me to a new seasonal veggie in my weekly basket and given me the little nug in the right direction on the proper fixins of this interesting looking veggie.  If any of you bake your broccoli in the oven this is basically the same exact process of drizzling with olive oil, sprinkling with salt and pepper and baking until done.  Oh so good!

Here's what you'll want to get and do...
  • .5 to 1 lb Okra
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Wash and cut off tops of okra then slice down the middle along the long length
  3. Place okra seed side up on a baking sheet
  4. Drizzle Olive oil trying to get some on each one and then and salt & pepper
  5. Place in oven and bake for approx 15-18 mins.  They should be slightly browned around the edges but still soft
  6. If you want this faster try broiling them for 7-8 minutes
