    Okra That Doesn't Taste Much Like Okra

    Okra That Doesn't Taste Much Like Okra

    1 lb. raw okra, sliced into thin rounds
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons cumin
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    a healthy sprinkle of garlic powder (
    about garlic powder)
    1/2 oz. ground almonds
    1 teaspoon olive oil


    1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

    2. Slice okra into rounds. Enjoy the pretty star shape in an attempt to ignore the slime. Trust me: you're an adult – you can get over the slime.

    3. Mix remaining ingredients except olive oil and set aside.

    4. Toss okra with olive oil in a large bowl, then the sprinkle spice/almond blend over the top and mix well.

    5. Transfer to a baking sheet and spread into a single layer. (I originally wrote "cookie sheet" in that sentence. When was the last time I used my BAKING sheet for cookies?! That damn thing should be called a veggie sheet. Anyway....) Pop into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. The okra should be starting to brown but not too shrunken and dehydrated.

    6. Eat with your fingers like popcorn! The okra doesn't quite get crunchy, but the oil+almond combo plus the high heat of the oven makes it tender-crisp and flavorful.
