How to Roast Okra in a Roasting Tray + Video

okraRoasted Okra? Yup, that’s what I said…

In this recipe, I’m using a fantastically handy roasting tray from Mutt Shop Products.

It’s actually a Jalapeño Pepper Roasting Tray, but it is also versatile enough to handle such things as other small peppers, okra, carrots, even artichokes with longer stems.

How to Roast Okra in a Roasting Tray - cookingwithkimberly.comI had deduced that 2 okra will fit into each roasting tray hole, so I am able to use up to 30 okra. That’s plenty for a side dish for 3 – 4 people with hearty helpings.

This method of roasting the okra keeps it from being excessively slimy, what most people complain about with eating this vegetable, especially in “wet dishes” like soups & stews – a shame, really, because okra is so tasty!
