Super Easy Oven-Roasted Okra


This roasted frozen okra is a really easy recipe. Being a full-time employee and a mom of a toddler, I always look for easy and healthy recipes. This one uses spices like curry, ginger, and turmeric. It's so easy to put together, and it turns out very well. When you roast the okra, you'll notice the slime goes away — that's what I like about this recipe. You don't have to monitor it. Just put it in the oven, and it's done.

  • cooking spray

  • 12 ounces frozen chopped okra

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ½ teaspoon curry powder

  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

  • salt to taste

  • ½ teaspoon dried cilantro (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

  2. Place frozen okra and onion on the prepared baking sheet; drizzle with canola oil. Combine onion powder, garlic powder, ginger, turmeric, curry powder, paprika, and salt in a bowl. Sprinkle over vegetables and toss to coat.

  3. Roast in the preheated oven until tender, about 34 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with cilantro.


Chop onion so that each piece is the same size as okra.

You can use vegetable oil instead of canola, or red chili powder instead of paprika if desired.
