Last week there was a ton of okra in our produce delivery, so I tried this oven fried okra recipe. It turned out great, and I savored every last crispy delicious piece. The best part of making my own fried okra (besides eating it) was how beautiful the slices were! I had no idea what the inside of okra pods looked like. I’d only ever seen the slices covered in batter and fried (I live in the south after all). I got really excited about my bowl full of hairy green pinwheels, and set a few pods aside to slice up and photograph later. Of course some sketching ensued too!
What’s your favorite way to eat okra?
