Roasted Okra

Got okra?  Well, our neighbor had tons of it and came to our backdoor with a 5 gallon bucket filled with the pods.  I washed a bunch of it by scrubbing each pod with a green scrubby pad to remove the hairy coating.

I cut off the top and bottom of each pod and sliced them up.  If any pods were tough, I tossed them in the compost bucket.

I tossed them with olive oil and some Old Bay Seasoning.

By the way, using parchment paper on your pan makes clean up much easier and keeps the okra from sticking to the pan.  I roasted the okra in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  Hubs likes these veggies a little on the crispy (slightly burnt) side so I may have roasted them a bit longer.

We used the roasted okra with homemade salsa and some grated cheese to make nachos.

I roasted the rest of the okra and froze it to use later.
