Amazing and Easy Summer Side Dish: Roasted Okra


One of my workout friends, Angie, told me about some roasted okra she had recently. I love roasting vegetables, and I love okra so why not? This is so simple, fast and delicious. Even my kids (who I admit are used to fried okra) were fighting over them. Just simply trim the edges of the okra slightly and season with salt, pepper and olive oil. They come out phenomenal!
