Oven Roasted Okra

This recipe was served at a party and I was amazed at its simplicity. It was easy to eat as a finger food and was not slimy as okra can be. I immediately started serving it as a side- it is lower in calorie and so much easier than frying it. With the bounty of okra, it is a great time to try this recipe. Enjoy!
