Okay, confession time. Even though it’s a classic southern side, I thought I hated okra. And that may still be partially true because I do hate the gooey mess of okra, but thanks to my good friend Amy with Greenbrier Farms, I was introduced to a whole different way of cooking fresh okra that makes it crispy and dry and deeeelicious (but it’s not fried okra, so it’s one of the more healthier okra recipes!)—the best way to make okra, in my opinion!
OMG. Sorry guests. I ate them all before you arrived!
What Does Okra Taste Like?
Okra has a mild, grassy flavor, similar to eggplant or green beans. But, when roasted, some of the smaller pieces are so crispy and good you might even mistake them for French fries. Yep, it’s that good.
So please do me a favor and give this super quick and easy roasted whole okra recipe a go the next time you need a vegetable side dish, and then tell me if I’ve turned you into an okra lover as well! :)
