Crispy Okra with steamed green beans and organic chicken sauteed with red onion, garlic, lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil

Admittedly, this okra was destined to be delicious. It was tender and fresh, direct from my Dad’s garden, and picked with love by my Mom and two little girls. How could it not have been the best okra I’ve ever had? Plus, the super simple prep and high heat roasting brought out the flavors and gave the okra an awesome texture.

Before the summer is over, get yourself some okra and throw it in the oven! This is a great side and a surprisingly satisfying snack.
