Crispy Baked Okra

Source:  Audra made this one up and the family LOVES it….except Burger Boy who will eat ANYTHING but okra and pine nuts.


  • A bag of FRESH okra (see photo from Sprouts)
  • 1/4 cup instant gourmet spice (see photo..I bought at Fresh Market)
  • 1/4 cup butter


Preheat oven to 400.  Line a baking sheet with foil.   Cut off top and bottom of okra and slice lengthwise.  Lay inside up on the baking sheet.  Melt butter in microwave.  Brush melted butter onto okra.   Shake Instant Gourmet (or  your favorite spices) to lightly cover the okra.  Cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes to desired crispiness.

Delicious!   We eat this alongside a meal or as an afternoon snack in our house.
