Oven Fried Okra
This oil-free gluten-free Oven Fried Okra recipe is savory and delicious. We made it for Amelia’s non-vegan, southern family and they ate every last morsel! And then asked for more!!!
Cooking okra without oil means they aren’t quite as crispy (or greasy) as traditional fried okra, but they’re just as flavorful and oh so much healthier. You can actually taste the okra and cornmeal, not just the oil.
We served them with some Sweet and Spicy Sauce and our amazing Cajun Red Beans & Rice for a real taste of the south. Some Vegan Cornbread would make the perfect southern dinner.

- 1 pound okra washed and stems removed
- 3/4 cup almond milk or your favorite non-dairy milk
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup oat flour or your favorite flour
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt (optional)
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Wash the okra and remove the stems.
- Mix the almond milk, cornmeal, oat flour, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, cayenne pepper and black pepper in a small mixing bowl. The batter should be a little thick, but not dry. Add more non-dairy milk to thin it or add more cornmeal to thicken it.
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (NOT wax paper).
- Add a few pieces of okra to the batter and stir to coat well. Place the okra on the lined baking sheet. Repeat until all the okra has been coated with the batter, leaving a little space between each piece of okra on the sheet.
- Bake for 15 minutes, then gently rotate the okra and bake for another 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
Serving size is about 1/4th of the cooked okra.
