  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Toss okra with oil (portion for okra) and spread onto a sheet pan. Season with some salt. Roast for 20 minutes, shaking once midway through.

  3. While okra roasts, heat a 10.5” to 12” / 26 cm to 30 cm skillet (for 4 servings; use a larger skillet if customizing for more than 4) over medium-high heat. Add oil (portion for frittata) and then shallots and bell peppers. Saute until shallots are tender, ~2 minutes. Add ham and spinach and saute until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes more.

  4. Pour in eggs. Stir until ingredients are all mixed through and then transfer to the oven. (Note: Skillet measurements assume 4 servings; if customizing, you can transfer the egg mixture to an oiled muffin tin for mini frittatas. Reduce bake time to 15 to 20 minutes.) Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until eggs are set and inserted knife comes out cleanly.

  5. Slice frittata.

  6. Serve frittata with okra and curry aioli on the side. (Dip the okra in sauce like fries.) Enjoy!
