This Spicy Oven Roasted Okra has become one of my favorite new snacks. Roasting my okra gets rid of the slime factor and makes this awesome veggie palatable for me. I just can’t do slime.

I love Oven Roasted Okra and tried something a bit different with some whole fresh okra that I got recently. You can also do this with Frozen Okra and even the cut okra that is recommended in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. Personally, I can only eat okra in a couple of ways due to texture issues, but let me tell you the THM Cookbook opened up a variety of ways to include this wonder vegetable in my Journey to Trim and Healthy.
Spicy Oven Roasted Okra Makes a Great Snack
If you are like me and need some easy snacks that taste great but are a bit more portable than slices of chocolate cheesecake or mock dutch apple pie, this Spicy Oven Roasted Okra may be the ticket!! Mixing it up with some of the green fries that you can find in the Trim Healthy Mama Book it becomes a wonderful snack food.
