Oven-Roasted Okra


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". :)

Step 1

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
