  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cups okra pods trimmed (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 16oz jar Molli Morelos cooking sauce
  • 4 medium about 1 pound portobello mushrooms, with caps
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add okra and saute for 1 minute. Add water and Molli Morelos cooking sauce; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, remove the stems from the mushrooms and wipe the caps clean.

  5. Place the caps, gill side up, on the baking pan. Roast for 10 minutes. Turn and roast until the mushrooms are tender and well browned, about 15 minutes.
