Okra is actually a very delicious and nutritious vegetable that is an excellent source of fiber and is honestly DELICIOUS grilled! Now that the farmers markets are starting to be abundantly full of this and other vegetables… crank up the grill and try a little grilled okra this weekend!
- About 4 cups of fresh okra
- 1 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Rinse okra and trim off the stem and tips of each pod. Toss pods in olive oil with salt and pepper. Place on a medium hot grill in a vegetable basket or skewer them on 2 skewers–line them up in a row and put one skewer through near the top and one near the bottom (this will keep them from spinning on the skewer when you try to move them).
Grill until golden brown and desired tenderness.
