Savory Coconut Okra

What you need: 

2 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil

salt to taste

What you do: 

Heat oven to 350º F. Spread coconut in a thin layer on a small baking sheet. Cook in preheated oven for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and set aside.

Meanwhile, cut tops off okra just below the ridge and discard. Slice okra in half lengthwise and set aside.

Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add okra and salt and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes.

Add toasted coconut and continue to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring often, or until okra is tender.
