Sometimes there’s really not much to say about a recipe. Why okra cakes? Well, to be honest, it all has to do with stubbornness. Okra can be gross and I can be stubborn. So obviously that meant I needed to come up with a way to enjoy eating the slimy-interior wheel shaped vegetable besides just frying into little bites (because if you’ve never tried it that way, it’s gooood). I did, the result are these crispy cornmeal cakes and they’re pretty delicious but really, I have nothing else to say about them other than that. They’re perfect with the refreshing cilantro lime yogurt dip.
