Air Fryer Frozen Okra -Air fryers are all the rage right now, and for a good reason! They make cooking so much easier and faster. And they’re perfect for those of us who want to eat healthier because they cook food without using any oil. This week I decided to use my air fryer for cooking some frozen okra. It was a great decision! The Okra came out crispy and delicious. If you’ve never cooked with an air fryer before, I highly recommend giving it a try. You won’t be disappointed!
Air Fryer Frozen Okra is one of the easiest side dishes you can make in the Air Fryer, and from start to finish, it’s done within 10 minutes.

What is Okra?
Okra is a southern vegetable. Growing up, we did not eat it. I am not sure if I was from New England or my mother was from Italy.
Either way, Okra is a great vegetable. You can either batter it or fry it up as it is. Today, I used a frozen version of the popular vegetable.
Okra is characterized as a long green vegetable with seeds inside of it. The seeds are perfectly edible.
Okra is perfect for you, rich in magnesium, folate, fiber, antioxidants, and rich in Vitamins C, K1, and A.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Frozen Okra
- Frozen Okra (Either breaded or not breaded)
- Air Fryer
- Cooking Spray
How To Make Air Fryer Frozen Okra
Pour the frozen Okra into the Air Fryer Basket, spread it out, so it’s an even one layer of Okra. Spray with cooking spray.
Air Fry for 7 to 9 minutes at 400 degrees F, air fryer setting. Shaking frequently during the cooking process.
Some Pro Tips
- For best results, keep the okra frozen before adding it to the air fryer basket. Frozen vegetables tend to air fry up better when they start frozen.
- Spray your okra with some cooking spray which will help them crisp up.
- Season right before serving with your favorite seasonings. I use salt and black pepper.
- Since all air fryers cook a bit differently, I recommend watching your air fryer during the cooking process.
- My okra did not stick to the air fryer basket, therefore I did not spray my basket first.
How To Store Air Fryer Frozen Okra
If you have any leftover okra, let it cool to room temperature and add it to an airtight container. Place the container into the refrigerator.
It will last for about 2 to 3 days. After that dispose of it.
To Reheat Air Fryer Okra
If you want to reheat your leftover okra in your Air Fryer, set it in the basket, and then reheat for 5 to 8 minutes at 350 degrees F, air fryer setting.
Season before serving.
