Caramelized Okra and Corn with Coconut, Mint, and Lime

Roasting brings out okra’s natural sweetness while searing away its sliminess. Okra’s grassy flavor is enhanced with summer corn and coconut in this Thai-inspired side dish. To give the combination more of a spicy kick, toss the vegetables with a squeeze or two of sriracha hot sauce when adding the lime juice.
