The easier, healthier alternative to fried okra. Still gives you a delicious flavor, with no slime!
1 pound okra Salt to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Rinse the okra, and drain on a kitchen towel. The okra should be dry. Trim away the stem ends and the tips, just the very ends, and then place the okra in a large bowl. Salt to taste, and toss with the olive oil until coated.
Lift the okra from the bowl, leaving behind any excess oil. Place on a sheet pan in one layer. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes (large okra might take a little longer), shaking the pan every five minutes. The okrashould be lightly browned and tender, with a nice seared aroma. If you don’t want it to brown as much, setthe oven at 400 degrees.
Remove from the heat, toss with freshly ground pepper. Transfer to a platter. Serve hot.
