I love grilled okra, but this time of year I don’t exactly want to go outside and grill. Just add it to the list of reasons that winter is NOT my favorite season. My indoor grill pan is an okay winter-substitute for the outdoor grill, but I always miss the smokey char-grilled flavor of my outdoor grill. I decided to roast the okra instead and see what happened. It turns out that okra is just like all other veggies and tastes even better roasted! I hesitate to even post this because it’s not really a “recipe”, but maybe you’re looking for a new veggie recipe or a new way to eat okra. This is it! I feel like okra doesn’t get enough love. It’s delicious! Give it a try. Enjoy!
