Ingredients

Roasted Okra

  • 1 pound fresh okra
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • coarse salt to taste

Peanut Ginger Sauce

  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup (to keep it vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • coarse salt to taste

Instructions

Roast the Okra

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the okra. Slice off the tops and cut the okra lengthwise.
  • Place the cut okra onto a baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between each piece. Drizzle with sesame oil. Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes and salt to taste.
  • Roast the okra for 10-12 minutes, turning once. Remove from the oven and enjoy as a warm snack or side dish.

Purée the Peanut Ginger Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients using a whisk or blender for a smoother finish.
