Crisp Oven-Charred Okra

This okra is fragrantly spiced and oven fried until the pods are deeply browned and irresistibly crisp. We prefer to keep the okra whole, but this means it’s best to choose evenly sized pods so they cook at the same rate. We like this as a side with lemon wedges for squeezing, but it’s also a great appetizer or snack with sour cream-dill sauce (see following recipe) for dipping.

Tip

Don’t skip the foil lining on the baking sheet. The foil prevents the okra from sticking and also makes cleanup a breeze. Don’t stir the okra during roasting. Letting the pods cook undisturbed allows them to crisp and brown deeply, but do rotate the baking sheet about halfway through to help ensure even cooking.
