Quick Roasted Okra

This quick roasted okra will get a dinner side on the table in flash! I've had issues with other okra recipes being too "slimy", but this recipe is not that. Give this one a try if you're looking for a new okra recipe that isn't fried.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 25 Minutes


  • 1 pound okra, rinsed and dried

  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • Ground pepper to taste

  • Pinch of cayenne, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 450

  2. Trim the okra by cutting away the stem end (some people also cut the tips), then cut the okra in half lengthwise

  3. Place okra in a large bowl.  Add your oil and spices and toss to coat the okra.

  4. Place okra on a baking sheet in a single layer

  5. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes shaking or stirring the okra a couple of times during roasting.  You will know the okra is ready when it's lightly browned and tender.

  6. Serve hot!
