I had gotten some whole pod okra to keep in the freezer and pulled it tonight.

 

Because roasting Brussels sprouts was SO yummy, I thought I'd give it a try!

 

I covered a bake sheet with al foil, sprayed with olive oil, spaced out the frozen okra pods, sprayed and roasted at 400 degrees for 12ish minutes, turned then finished up for about 10 minutes.  I put them in a bowl, drizzled with a tiny bit of butter, and WOW!!!

 

Very much like fried okra without the grease!Smiley Happy

I've only ever fried whole okra pods in extra-virgin olive oil with a little minced garlic.  I will try your recipe.

@ECBG My mom always rolled the okra pieces in corn meal and then fried in a little bit of oil in a cast iron skillet. We always looked forward to picking the okra and waiting for that big bowl full. Did your whole pods have any coating on them?

Made this okra today and it is yummy!  Missed the cornmeal, but not that much.  Really enjoyed it.  Would never have thought to roast thawed whole okra.  Thanks.
