    Better than French Fries...


    I searched to see what Mark had to say about okra... pretty nice endorsement:

    "Okra is just about the easiest way to lose that belly fat you can eat an entire bag for fewer calories than a slice of cheese."

    If you can get your hands on some okra, try roasting some in the oven or on the grill. There are lots of variations of this online, and here's a link to my first attempt:

    I am starting to think that the only way to eat most vegetables is roasted. It sure brings out the flavors, and it is a good way to add a little fat to your diet without a lot of extra calories.

    I figure that sex is better than french fries. Which is good because eating french fries lowers your chances of ever having sex.

    wow! good idea, we love our okra down here in alabama i've never ever ever had it roasted. always fried or in gumbo or in okra n' tomatos. i'll have to give this a try for sure
    i will maintain the truth
    i knew naturally as a child
    i won't forfeit my creativity
    to a world that's all laid out for me
    i'll look at everything around me
    and i will vow to bear in mind
    that all of this was just someone's idea
    it could just as well be mine - ani difranco

    I do not like okra, but I might like them roasted this way. I need to try roasting other veggies.

    Cool! I never thought of roasting okra. I will try this before our stores supply dries up. Too cold here to grow it myself.

    I don't know if they are actually better than sweet potato fries Strom, but a really close 2nd!

    I'm over here in Georgia so we are practically neighbors Alexa85.

    And John, it truly is like a completely different food this way. Another veggie I like roasted is Brussels Sprouts....butter, salt, pepper. Another amazing vegetable transformation!
