Baked Okra Fries


Baked Okra Fries

My kids have always shied away from okra, until I started making this baked okra recipe. These are just like French fries -- nice and crispy, and you can never have just one! 

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh okra
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chat masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Wash okra and either air dry or dry with kitchen towel. It’s very important that okra is dry, otherwise it will be slimy when you cut it. 

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

  3. Place okra in center of large rimmed sheet pan and drizzle oil over top. 

  4. Add all seasonings and toss well to coat.

  5. Spread okra out in single layer. 

  6. Roast in oven for 18-20 minutes, shaking pan once after 10 minutes to turn okra.
