Okra is a staple of Southern summer suppers. And I buy as much of it as I can while the farmers grow it. It’s my favorite vegetable.
While the South may be all about fried foods, Whole30 is not. So we must improvise.
Meet Oven Roasted “Fried” Okra.
What you need:
- As much okra as you want to roast, sliced into circles
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Cayenne, to taste
- Garlic powder, to taste
- Coconut oil, to drizzle
- A sprinkle of almond flour, enough to cover and coat the okra.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine okra, salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, coconut oil and almond flour.
Stir until okra is evenly coated. Spread evenly on baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until your desired crispiness.
It’s the closest thing to fried okra. And it’s amazing.
