Roasted French Style Green Beans and Okra

My new favorite food is any vegetable roasted.  I have been roasting everything.  Today I have roasted French style cut green beans and okra.  I just found them in the grocery freezer section.  The Pictsweet French Style Cut Green Beans comes in a 1 pound bag.  You can get the okra packaged the same way.  I used one-half of the green bean  bag and about 1/2 cup of okra to make enough green beans and okra for two people.  I tossed them into a shallow 8-inch x 8-inch baking dish, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with a little salt.  I put them in a 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes.  I like the edges of the pan to be extra crispy.  You may not like your green beans that well cooked.  I love this because it is quick, easy, and available year round. 
What is your favorite way to cook your veggies?

Hmmm. . . roasted okra? I've recently tried a similar method and it was not so great. I think I 'll have to give your recipe a try because my usual fried method is not so healthy. Delicious, yes, but healthy, no.
I like the combination with green beans!
Thanks for the idea!

Yummy! Roasted green beans sound delicious. I have never had okra. I am going to try barbequeing broccoli on the grill one of these days. That should be tasty too. Thanks for sharing at my HOME and enjoy your weekend, Sherry.

I definitely don't get enough okra, but I'm always on the lookout for a good recipe. Sometimes the texture is less than appealing, so I'm looking forward to trying your recipe!

Thanks so much for sharing this on Waste Not Want Not Wednesday, Sherry, I've pinned it :)
