Roasted Okra and New Potatoes

This is a tasty way to roast okra.  It takes so much better than stewed okra, and is so much better for you than fried okra.  It is better if you use really fresh okra!  Remember the vegetables will shrink while roasting, so make sure you have enough because you will want seconds!

Ingredients

  •  6-8 new potatoes, skin on, scrubbed and quartered
  • 18 fresh okra pods, sliced 1/3 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper, or to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Combine potatoes and okra in glass bowl
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange the okra slices and potatoes in one layer on a foil lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Shake pan to roll vegetables with 5 minutes remaining
