Easy Baked Okra Fries
Serves 2-3
Prep- time 10 minutes
Cook time 30 minutes
Ingredients:
a little over a pound of fresh okra
coconut oil
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
ziploc bag

Directions: Pre-heat oven at 400 degrees. Clean and dry your okra. Next cut into strips. This is the part that takes a little bit of time. We lightly tossed them in some coconut oil (about 1-2 tsp) to help make the flour and spices stick.

Grab a ziploc bag and place your cut okra stripes into the bag. Toss in your brown rice flour and spices. You can spice them any way you like.


Now for the fun part….toss the bag all around till all the okra fries are covered in flour and spices!

Take okra out of bag and place the now covered okra fries on a pan and we ended up adding a little bit more coconut oil to help make the fries crispy (about 1 tbsp). Bake the okra fries in oven for 25-30 minutes.

We ended up placing them on a large skillet to cook some more because they ended up not getting as crispy as we were looking for. Next time we will try it from the beginning on the skillet to see how it compares to baking them. Our batch of okra fries was a mix of crispy and soft, chewy okra fries. Not a bad attempt for our first time.
