Okra is known for its gooey interior, so you might be surprised by how crispy the pods can get. Here, they’re sliced in half lengthwise, tossed with seasoning salt and a touch of canola oil, then sprinkled with cornstarch to ensure a light crunch. Just 15 minutes in the circulating dry heat of the air fryer and out come next-level veggie fries to enjoy with lunch or as a stand-alone snack.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Uncooked okra

8 oz, trimmed and halved lengthwise

Canola oil

1½ tsp(s)

Cornstarch

1¼ tbsp(s)

Seasoning salt

¼ tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat an air fryer to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the okra and oil. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and seasoning salt. Sprinkle the cornstarch seasoning over the okra and toss well to coat.
  3. Coat the air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Arrange the okra in a single layer in the basket and coat with cooking spray. Cook the okra in the air fryer until crisp and browned, 14 to 15 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.
  4. Serving size: about ¾ cup
