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
  • tablespoons cumin
  • 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.
