This summer we tried growing okra again (the last attempt was a big bust), and it succeeded! We have four plants. I would honestly double that for future consumption, because I can eat it all by myself, with no help from Lee.
I've been roasting it, which is really beyond simple. I've found that the smallest stalks are most tender. I think the general rule is "less than five inches", but I might hazard a guess that I like them best under three inches.
I spray a pan with non stick and the okra a little too. Then I sprinkle a small amount of seasoning on (I'm currently cooked on a Cajun blend), and bake in the oven about 10 to 15 minutes.
And the result is just delicious!!
How do you eat your okra?
