How to buy okra
When shopping for okra, look for smooth, blemish-free, bright green pods. Avoid pods that have a dry end because this is an indicator that the okra has been sitting out on a shelf for a while. Also, pay attention to the size. Don’t buy okra that is above five inches long because it tends to have rough skin, and the seeds are tougher, too.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Rinse the okra, and then cut it into 1/2 to 3/4-inch pieces. Spread the okra on a sheet pan in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil, paprika, salt, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Stir.
Bake the okra for about 15 minutes. The okra should be lightly browned and tender, with a nice seared aroma. Serve immediately.
