Spicy Oven-Roasted Okra
PAIRS WITH: Fulton St. Coffee Ale
Serves 4 as a Side

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound fresh okra, rinsed and dried thoroughly
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or 1 full teaspoon for the bold)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Trim the rough tops and skinny bottom tips off of the okra pods, and cut the okra in half lengthwise. In a large bowl, toss the okra, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and olive oil together until well combined. On a rimmed baking sheet, spread the okra in a single layer and roast in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until brown. Serve immediately.
