Default Roasted Okra

Trimmed and tossed Okra in Olive Oil, salted lightly with Kosher Salt

Roasted at 450° for 20 minutes
Served on a bed of Lemon Thyme

Should have Broiled instead

It was bland and I did not like it, no one else did either for that matter!

Okra like that lends itself well to eastern spices like garam masala.

Salt liberally as okra has a super mild, earthy flavor! Broiling for less time gets a crisp without turning it to mush. I also like lemon, cumin and red pepper flakes on it. For a twist, add sliced almonds for the last few minutes until they are toasted. There is a recipe out there called crack broccoli. What makes it crack is sliced almonds, red pepper and Parmesan Reggiano. The crack goes good on most roasted veggies imo.

It kind of looks like the grilled okra I do sometimes. Tossed in olive oil, sprinkled with bbq rub and speared onto skewers to keep them from falling through the grill. Pretty good stuff!
