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.
8 oz, trimmed and halved lengthwise
- Preheat an air fryer to 400°F.
- 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.
- 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.
