Bea's Oven Fried Okra
*Diane said that you can also do squash the same way.
Be sure to check out the grilled okra as well as boiled okra below.
- okra, fresh
- flour (self rising or all purpose)
- salt & pepper
- olive oil (or any oil really)
Wash okra but leave whole with a little stem on end. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Add salt, black pepper, a little olive oil and about 2 tablespoons of vinegar (that's the secret). Boil til okra has changed colors and is tender. I like boiling mine to the point that they are just beginning to split open. My best friend, Ann's mother, cooked okra this way. I never cared for boiled okra until I ate Ann's mother's okra cooked like this. I think the vinegar makes all the difference.
