"Roasting the okra with tomatoes keeps it from being slimy, and a dusting of panko adds a touch of crunch to mimick fried okra without the added fat from frying."

cherry tomatoes, halved
kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

The first to review!! This is pretty good actually. I used frozen cut okra, thawed, and a regular tomato, diced. I had to roast a little longer than called for since the okra was kind of damp from the defosting, but the results were good..nice and crunchy. And so easy. Will make again
I thought it was OK. It wasn't slimy and the flavor was pretty good, but I thought it tasted crunchy and maybe undercooked. We ate some and then I put it in the oven about another 7 min, but it still tasted the same. Some of it was stringy too! So yes, the taste was good but the texture was kind of funky.
I am new to the south, but my husband was raised here. He says that these taste just as good as when his grandmother fries them.. and he hardly EVER eats veggies, so it was a big compliment. These were great!
This was delicious! It tastes as good as fried okra, but is much healthier. it would be great with or without the tomatoes if you would prefer to just have roasted okra.
YUM! We have okra and cherry tomaotes coming out of our ears from our garden. I was sick of the frying mess and gave this a try. We munched on it as an appetizer and fought over the crumbs. Delicious!!
Yum! Nice and light and crunchy.
Roasted okra is the best way to eat it! I loved the panko in this!
Love it! I was skeptical about how close it would taste to fried okra, but it's spot on without all the grease. I used regular bread crumbs and a normal tomato and it turned out just fine. I might add just a touch of cayenne next time to give it a bit of a kick.
