  • Bowl
  • baking sheet pan


  • 800 g Okra fresh
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
  • ½ tsp Cracked black pepper
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Oregano dried


  • Preheat oven to 230C  446F
  • Cut off the stem ends of the okra and place in a bowl.
  • Place EVOO, salt, black pepper and oregano with the okra and coated well by mixing through.
  • Line a baking sheet pan with baking paper and place each okra singularly without overlapping. Cook in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until golden. Serve warm


  • Any dried herb or spice can be used instead of oregano
  • Adjust quantities of the herbs and spices to suit your liking
  • The okra tips will brown quicker as they are thinner
  • Roasted okra will still be soft on the inside with crispy outsides
  • Okra naturally is slimy, this is normal
  • Optional - turn okra around the 15min mark during roasting
  • Roasting okra in oven is easy, however watch out at the end as they can burn quickly
  • After washing okra, be sure to dry well with a paper towel, leaving no moisture
💭Recipe Tips
  • Try and avoid the large okra, as these are woody with stringy bits
  • Select green okra without any brown spots, these tend to be older
  • Using same sized okra pods will ensure all pieces are cooked evenly (as larger okra will take longer to roast)
