Better Than Fried Okra

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe in my food blog. I’ve been so busy with many things in and outside the house this past Summer until Fall season. While I have done a lot of simple but yummy cooking, I have not forgotten to write down recipes and take pictures of the dishes I’ve made that I thought might be interesting to some of my friends. This time I am sharing with you my family’s favorite okra delight. If you don’t like the slime of Okra and want to eliminate deep-fried dishes in your menu; this recipe might click for you.

Classification: Vegan
Good source of fiber, pantothenic acid. phosphorus, manganese, vitamin B3 & B6

INGREDIENTS:

okra – 7 cups, diced
corn meal/flour – 3/4 cups
vegan chicken-like seasoning (country style seasoning) – 1 & 1/2 TBspoon
or use available seasoning.
onion powder – 1 t.spoon
garlic powder – 1/2 t.spoon
olive oil – 2 TBspoon

STEPS:

1. Wash and drain fresh okra. Slice about half an inch thick.
2. Place diced okra in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle olive oil and toss well.
3. Sprinkle corn meal flour, chicken-like seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder evenly. You may add salt as needed. Mix altogether gently. If you need to add more corn flour and olive oil, you may do so.
Note: Adjust seasoning according to your taste.
4. Spread seasoned, diced okra evenly in a baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated oven set at 350*F (170*C) for 30 minutes. If you want your okra to be extra crispy, let it sit in the oven until it is more brown and drier.

Enjoy as a side dish with or without gravy! 🙂
