Baked Okra

Friends, we have continued on our path of healthy eating and living, but unfortunately had to take a really long break. In a nutshell…we have lost our beloved father to Alzheimer’s within this past year and a half from the point of diagnose. We have never seen anything like this move so quickly. Several trips to Europe, and a full career transition for me away from my very successful executive career, which is now manifesting in wellness through yoga for corporations and beyond. We have missed you!

Many of you may not be fans of Okra as it can be a little slimy and off-putting. We love it regardless. But we have heard you and would like to offer you this extremely simple recipe, which has zero slimy consistency. Baked Okra … at last. 🙂

Ingredients: 

  • Approximately 20 large fresh Okra pods
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt, sprinkle to taste
  • A little freshly ground rainbow pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Garam Masala
    • TIP: always make sure to keep your spices in a tightly sealed spice box, and use fresh spices.
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of Ghee

Prep & Cook:  (preheat oven to 425 – we used convection)

Wash and dry Okra with a clean dish towel, cut the tops off just under the head and discard. Chop Okra into bite size pieces and toss into a baking pan, spread them out nicely. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and spices, toss with your hands and then add Ghee. Place into your oven and check every 5 minutes, giving them a little stir. 10 – 15 minutes depending on convection or not and your oven, and you’ll have crispy perfect Okra that will please everyone!  Jo & Henry
