A versatile Vegetable

Okra is one of those vegetables that can be prepared in so many different ways. You can eat it fresh right off the vine. Another popular method is to boil it, although personally, it is not my favorite. Then there is fried okra. If you have ever been to any country style, or southern cooking restaurant, you know that fried okra will be on the menu. I love me some okra but there are times where I don’t want it fried (or boiled) which is what my inspiration was for this recipe!

This baked okra is fresh and can be whipped up in a snap. Plus it makes for a great afternoon snack or a side dish. These okra are coated in a simple but flavorful seasoning and baked to where they have that good crunch but are also soft at the same time.

    1. Hi Pamela, yes you can use frozen okra. You can either thaw them first or extend the cooking time if you start with them frozen. If you start with them frozen, you may want to turn them over after the first 15 minutes.
