I usually just toss whole okra with a little olive oil and salt, but came across this recipe that is amazingly tasty and easy to make. Hard to serve as a side dish - people start picking them up and eating as soon as they come out of the oven. A new version of "finger food". :)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon salt or herb salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 1/2 lbs. okra, rinsed and patted dry
- Lime, cut into wedges
Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 15mins

Oven preheated to 500F.
Combine all of the ingredients except the okra and lime in a bowl. Mix to form a grainy paste.
Toss the okra in the mixture, then spread out on a baking sheet.
Lightly spray the okra with cooking spray, and bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Shake the pan every once in a while to prevent sticking.
The Okra is done when it's nice and tender.
Serve with lime wedges
