Roasted Okra: simple and delicious.  Best of all - no slime!  Really liked these a lot.  Didn't use the garlic powder; just salt and pepper and olive oil.  25 min. at 425 was perfect.  ~Suz

Roasted Okra with olive oil and sea salt! Tons of fresh okra at the market here in Charleston. Baking it, dries the okra "slime" a bit and makes it sweeter.

Roasted Okra, this was fantastic!!!!! I roasted it at 425 for close to 30 minutes, since I used frozen okra, stirred it half way through and then sprinkled with more salt before serving, seriously could eat this like popcorn!  My husband loved it too, and he doesn't like okra.
