Roasted Okra

Labor Day weekend we spent up at our family farm in Jasper. One day I will post some pictures, it is truly a  beautiful place, 30 acres of pasture, creeks and precious white house with a wrap around porch! Our friends Tom and Tara were heading up to Blue Ridge for the weekend and stopped by our place. Our neighbor had just dropped off a bag full of fresh okra from his garden. My friend Tara who is a fabulous cook, said have you ever just roasted okra? So that night we did and it was so simple, healthy and a hit with everyone!

20-30 whole okra
1T olive oil
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse and pat dry the fresh okra, toss in olive oil make sure the pieces get evenly coated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 mins, open the oven and give the pan a little shake to turn them over then bake for about 10 more minutes. Eat right away!
