Oven Roasted Okra
I do believe this simple recipe will change your concept of okra; if you don’t love it already, you soon will! Just make sure to pick the small okra for this recipe. It will get crunchier as you cook it.
- 1 pound young okra (less than 3 inches)
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1½ tablespoons cumin
- 1½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon chipotle chili pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Toss okra in olive oil to coat. Combine all dry spices and toss with okra.
Bake for 5-7 minutes and turn okra over onto the other side. Bake for another 3-5 minutes or until pods are softened. For a crunchy outside, let it go a little longer. You may think it has been in the oven a very long time, but it will be worth it.
