Basic Baked Okra

One year, while preparing a Turkey Frame Gumbo, I stumbled upon a recipe that called for baking the Okra prior to adding it to the mix...this technique is great for any recipe that calls for adding Okra to a soup or stew.  All of the flavor, none of the slime!  This is also a great side dish all by itself.

(1) 16oz bag frozen sliced Okra 
Olive Oil cooking spray
Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees (conventional) or 325-degrees (convection)
  • Spray a baking sheet with Olive Oil and add the frozen Okra in a single layer.  Give a quick spray over the top and place in preheated oven.
  • Bake 30 to 40 minutes until lightly browned, giving the pan a shake periodically to loosen any baked-on Okra.
