It’s true, okra is technically a fruit and yes, I know there are plenty of people who think okra is weird and slimy, but trust me here — pretty much everything tastes better when roasted, including okra!
I won’t lie, the chopping process can be a tiny bit slimy…
but throw a little olive oil and spices on those okra halves, toss them in the oven and roast for a good 20 to 25 minutes and you have yourself a tasty, healthy side dish sans the slime.
For you southerners, I know this isn’t exactly fried okra, but hear me out — it’s still crispy and it’s way better for you!
The only problem is that the okra does shrink down quite a bit and it’s addictive. I almost ate the whole pan by myself. Lucky for Isaac, I was able to save him a few pieces. Literally it was jut a few. Oops!
