Roasting the okra with tomatoes keeps it from being slimy, and a dusting of panko adds a touch of crunch to mimick fried okra without the added fat from frying.

The first to review!! This is pretty good actually. I used frozen cut okra thawed and a regular tomato diced. I had to roast a little longer than called for since the okra was kind of damp from the defosting but the results were good..nice and crunchy. And so easy. Will make again Read More

I thought it was OK. It wasn't slimy and the flavor was pretty good but I thought it tasted crunchy and maybe undercooked. We ate some and then I put it in the oven about another 7 min but it still tasted the same. Some of it was stringy too! So yes the taste was good but the texture was kind of funky. Read More

I am new to the south but my husband was raised here. He says that these taste just as good as when his grandmother fries them.. and he hardly EVER eats veggies so it was a big compliment. These were great! Read More

This was delicious! It tastes as good as fried okra but is much healthier. it would be great with or without the tomatoes if you would prefer to just have roasted okra. Read More

YUM! We have okra and cherry tomaotes coming out of our ears from our garden. I was sick of the frying mess and gave this a try. We munched on it as an appetizer and fought over the crumbs. Delicious!! Read More

Love it! I was skeptical about how close it would taste to fried okra but it's spot on without all the grease. I used regular bread crumbs and a normal tomato and it turned out just fine. I might add just a touch of cayenne next time to give it a bit of a kick. Read More
