We were at a local vegetable stand that had some fresh picked okra. I thought to myself, "Ok, I'll try it again". Okra takes some getting used to. I'm not used to it yet. That slimy inside is just not always pleasant.

I tried roasted okra, inspired by Susan of FatFreeVegan.

I added thinly sliced garlic.

We are still trying to like Okra.

Nope... not gonna sell that one here. Does it have some major nutritional value I don't know about or something? lol... becuase I just have never ever liked the stuff.

Well, I'm sure its good for you, in a allvegetablesaregoodforyou sort of way. The thing is that it grows almost effortlessly in the hot humid south. Its just so...available here.

The flavor is nice enough. Its the texture that is so off putting.
