Whole roasted okra and cherry tomatoes make for a quick, healthy side dish!


  • 1 pound okra, tops cut off
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 450. Meanwhile, trim your okra and combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. (Or be lazy like me and dump everything onto the roasting pan and toss it with your hands. Fewer dishes.)
  2. Roast the okra and tomatoes for about 10 minutes, then shake the pan to help the veggies rotate a bit for even charring and roast for another 5 minutes.
  3. Serve hot!
