Roasted Okra

I came across a recipe for roasted okra online at fatfree vegan kitchen, and decided to give it a try.  The recipe sounded novel yet simple to make, and I’m always looking for new ways to cook okra.  Derek liked the roasted okra quite a bit: he had seconds and then thirds.  I found the roasted okra a little odd, but tasty.  The pods became very soft–so soft you could even eat the tops, which are normally too hard and prickly.  Some okra pods were stringy, and difficult to bite through or even cut through with a butter knife, but they all had that great okra flavor.

    When I steam my okra I can always eat the tops. And of course the tops of picked okra are delicous as well.
    Too bad you kdidn’t post this sooner. I pulled up my last okra plant 2 weeks ago. Well there is always next summer.

    I disagree with the recipe. Large okra that I grow are not tough at all. Old okra are tough, when you leave them on the plant too long.
