Old Bay Skillet Okra
This pan seared skillet okra is perfect alongside your favorite Southern dishes. It's vegan, a little spicy, and so good on a hot summer evening!
- ½ lb. okra
- 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- 1 tsp olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Wash your okra, making sure to get any little hairs off. If you need to, scrub with your vegetable brush or a washcloth. Pat it dry.
Cut your okra into 1/2" or bite-sized pieces.
In a nonstick skillet, heat up your olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add your okra and sprinkle with salt.
Cook your okra over medium-high heat, stirring them occasionally.
When they start looking pretty good, or after about 5-6 minutes, sprinkle the Old Bay on and stir to combine.
Keep cooking your okra until they are fork-tender and the texture you prefer.
- You can cook your okra longer to make it drier, or shorter to leave it softer.
- To make it spicier, add a little more Old Bay. This is a super customizable recipe, so make it your own!
- This stores in the fridge for about 2 days.
