You guys never fail to surprise me when it comes to which ingredients and recipes get you excited. There was a lot of feedback and chit chat around the Okra 101 Video last week, so I’m excited to share this simple recipe for making okra fries.
If you are new to okra, this recipe is the PERFECT place to start. There’s no cutting or slicing into the okra, so the ‘slime’ factor that so many people freak out about is a non-factor. And the end result is a crispy, crunchy, flavorful plate of okra that taste like the veggie version of a french fry (yum!).
They are truly addictive straight out of the oven so prepare yourself to be delighted.
