Using some of the okra given to me this afternoon, our family had their fill. It was quite a treat we don’t have often. Here’s how I threw it together :

1 cup all purpose flour

1 cup cornbread mix

approx 1/2-1 cup milk

teaspoon of Tony Chachere Creole seasoning


slice okra in 1/2-1 inch pieces. Stir and dip in batter. Fry in 1/2 extra virgin olive oil, 12 canola. I just do thi because I like the flavor and health benefits og Olive Oil but when I fry with it, the food tends to soak it all up and is more oily tasting. A personal preference.

Once oil is hot reduce to medium (or low on gas stove) heat and cook approx 1-3 minutes on each side.

Voila! A healthy, deep fried snack! lol We serve with ranch dressingImage.
