Okra is a beloved vegetable in many parts of the world. Oven roasting is a simple but not very common preparation. The sweet fragrance of the fennel seeds complements the okra. Use any fennel seeds you have or can find.




- 1 lb Okra

- 4 tbsp Entimio Vivace Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus more for drizzling

- 1 tsp Sea Salt

- 1 tsp Black Pepper

- 2 tsp Fennel Seeds, divided




Step 1 - Preheat the oven to 350F. Trim the okra and cut it into diagonal slices. Combine the okra with salt, pepper, olive oil, and one teaspoon of fennel seeds. Spread onto a baking pan in a single layer making sure the okra is separate and not too close.

Step 2 - Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until cooked through – the color will change to a slightly darker green.

Step 3 - Sprinkle the remaining teaspoon of fennel seeds, drizzle more olive oil and serve warm or at room temperature.
