Many people dislike okra because it can get a slimy texture. However, roasting it according to the directions in this recipe greatly reduces the “slime” factor.
The flavor is amazing!
1 lb fresh okra
2 lb sweet potatoes
1/2 c red wine vinegar
1/2 c olive oil
1/4 c whole grain mustard
2 t mustard seeds
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the tops off the okra. Slice the okra in half, lengthwise. Toss the okra with a drizzle of olive oil and a good pinch of salt. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, turning the piece over half way through.
Peel the potatoes. Chop into a bite size pieces. Toss with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Layer on a second baking sheet and roast for 35 minutes, turning half way through.
In a large bowl, place the remaining ingredients and mix well.
When the vegetables are roasted add them to the dressing. Toss well and chill for an hour or more until serving.
