especially in a "healthy" way!
Then I found these and they are DELICIOUS...just wait 'til you try 'em!
3-4 cups fresh okra, finely chopped
1 c onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 black pepper
1/2 c water
2 egg whites
1/2 all purpose flour-(I used half whole wheat, half reg. flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 c cornmeal
2 tbs flaxseed meal
1/2 tsp garlic salt
*Mix okra, onion, salt, pepper, water, egg white in a bowl.
Then stir in all dry mix into okra mix and combine!
Heat just enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of your skillet-
(I used very little oil and they turned out YUMMY, so don't over do it!)
Drop spoonfuls into skillet, allowing to cook 2 minutes on each side, until browned.
Remove from oil and dry on paper towel!
These are YUMMY...watch out!
**and it was such a SNEAKY way
to get my boys eating their veggies!
I might try baking these next time, but we NEVER fry ANYTHING,
so I figure every now and then isn't that bad, right?! RIGHT!
My husband and boys LOVED these, they have great flavor
but make sure you watch portion control, these can be addicting :)
I served them with grilled chicken and turkey sausage without the skin!!
