Roasted Okra

Where my okra lovers at?! Personally, I will eat okra any way it comes- fried, roasted, stewed, pickled- you name it! While okra drenched in flour and tons of oil isn’t good for us, roasted is a great alternative that still gives that fried-like crispness! This recipe couldn’t be any easier, and totally satisfies that love for fried okra.


1 lb pkg fresh okra, rinsed

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp Maldon salt flakes or pink Himalayan sea salt (I use @maldonsalt)

1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Your choice of condiments (I use @primalkitchenfoods ketchup)


-Preheat oven to 450.

-Cut okra into half inch pieces.

-In a medium bowl, combine okra, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix until all pieces are coated.

-Spread okra out onto a baking sheet, making sure it’s in a single layer.

-Bake for 25 minutes, giving them a shake half-way through.

-If not to your desired crispness, bake for 5 more minutes.

-Serve with preferred condiments.
