This is so simple and easy and the okra tends to not be nearly as gummy or slimy when roasted. Chopped tomato makes a great addition if you have some handy.

  • 18 each fresh okra pods, sliced 1/3 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper, or to taste


Step 1
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2
Arrange the okra slices in one layer on a foil lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
