  • 4 cups fresh okra (chopped, width-wise)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Rinse and dry the okra.
  • Trim the stem side off the okra, then cut the okra in half, width-wise.
  • Place on a parchment paper lined baking tray.
  • Add the olive oil, sesame seeds, garlic, salt, and pepper on top of the okra and toss with your hands to ensure the okra is thoroughly coated.
  • Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, pausing after 15 minutes to shake the tray a bit so that the okra rolls around on the tray.
  • Makes 4 servings of oven roasted okra.


  • Be sure to shake the baking tray halfway through the baking process to ensure even cooking.
  • Cutting the okra in half before roasting prevents it from turning out slimy.
