Celebrity Okra

This is a super quick and easy okra recipe for folks like me who aren't much for fancy cookin' and folks like my friend George who can't keep up with their okra crop. We first heard of this from Cathy at Perrywinkle Farm, then I caught Brit from Celebrity Dairy in the store and double-checked it with him while he juggled an armload of wine and spelt bread.

Preheat your oven to 500˚. In a large bowl, toss the okra with enough oil to coat, salt and your favorite spices. Our first batch we used Panzanella's steak seasoning that includes crushed porcini mushrooms and pepper. Not being able to duplicate that at my house, I used Shichimi Togarashi (it's that little red bottle of spice powder on your table at sushi restaurants - a few different peppers, orange peel and sesame seeds.) Spread the coated okra on a tray and bake for 10 minutes. That's it!
