I’ve talked a few times about the vegetables I get in my weekly CSA bag. My favorite part about the bag is getting to try new things. Last summer, we got some okra in our CSA bag. And, I’ll be honest, I was not very excited about it. My one and only experience with okra, prior to this, was when I was pregnant, and it didn’t sit right with me. I’m always telling my kids to try new things, and try them again because your tastes change. Well, it was my time to lead by example. And boy, am I glad I did. When I’m cooking new vegetables for the first time, I often go back to the basics, and roasting vegetables is my favorite method. This oven roasted okra and tomato recipe couldn’t be easier, and it’s so good. The okra is not slimy, and the flavor is great. Now, we get excited when okra is on the menu.

Prep the Okra

Depending on the recipe, there are a number of ways to chop okra. For this recipe we’ll cut them into rounds, so they’re about the same size as the tomatoes. First, cut off the stem of the okra and the tips, and throw them away. Then, cut the okra into half inch slices.

Add in Tomatoes

The only prep for the tomatoes is to wash them if necessary. Then, put the tomatoes on a baking sheet with the cut up okra. You can use any small tomatoes you like. If you can find a variety pack, it’s a fun way to add more color to the dish.

Toss in Seasonings

Like I said earlier, this recipe is super simple. We’re using a couple pantry staples to season this tasty side dish. First, drizzle the vegetables with some olive oil. Then, season the okra and tomatoes with season salt and garlic powder. Seriously, that’s it. Toss the veggies until they are all coated in oil and seasoning.

Roast in the Oven

Once the okra and tomatoes are all seasoned, spread them out in an even layer on the baking sheet. Roast the vegetables at 425° in the oven until the tomatoes start to burst. It will take about fifteen to twenty minutes. It’s actually the high heat that helps prevent the okra from becoming slimy.

Toss and Serve

When the tomatoes have burst, take the baking sheet out of the oven. Then, toss the okra and tomatoes one more time. This way all the okra is coated in the tomato juice. Finally, serve the okra and tomatoes, and enjoy this quick and easy side dish.
