Mmmm, Mmmm Monday: Parmesan Okra and A Great Giveaway

I love okra.  It is a great summer veggie.  I really love it fried, but let's be honest, that probably defeats the purpose of eating it.  I found this recipe in Southern Living a couple of summers ago (along with the Chicken Enchiladas I shared last week) and it is a little bit healthier alternative to frying.  Oh, and I just so happen to think it tastes delicious!  Everyone who eats this, likes it.
Parmesan Okra
1 pound fresh okra, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices 
2 tablespoons olive oil
 1/4 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs (I actually try to do half Italian and half whole wheat, If I have both on hand) 

2 teaspoons Greek seasoning 
1/4 cup freshly shaved Parmesan cheese  ( I usually use less)
Sauté okra in olive oil over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender.  Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and seasoning, and cook, stirring often for 3 more minutes.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve immediately.
So easy and so tasty!

This is an excellent recipe, and I'm so glad you posted it. I've made it dozens of times, and it's a family favorite. I just spent an hour looking for my recipe, but here it is!
