  • Better than French Fries...


    I searched to see what Mark had to say about okra... pretty nice endorsement:

    "Okra is just about the easiest way to lose that belly fat you can eat an entire bag for fewer calories than a slice of cheese."

    If you can get your hands on some okra, try roasting some in the oven or on the grill. There are lots of variations of this online, and here's a link to my first attempt:

    I am starting to think that the only way to eat most vegetables is roasted. It sure brings out the flavors, and it is a good way to add a little fat to your diet without a lot of extra calories.

    I figure that sex is better than french fries. Which is good because eating french fries lowers your chances of ever having sex.

            wow! good idea, we love our okra down here in alabama i've never ever ever had it roasted. always fried or in gumbo or in okra n' tomatos. i'll have to give this a try for sure
            i will maintain the truth
            i knew naturally as a child
            i won't forfeit my creativity
            to a world that's all laid out for me
            i'll look at everything around me
            and i will vow to bear in mind
            that all of this was just someone's idea
            it could just as well be mine - ani difranco

              I do not like okra, but I might like them roasted this way. I need to try roasting other veggies.

                Cool! I never thought of roasting okra. I will try this before our stores supply dries up. Too cold here to grow it myself.

                  I don't know if they are actually better than sweet potato fries Strom, but a really close 2nd!

                  I'm over here in Georgia so we are practically neighbors Alexa85.

                  And John, it truly is like a completely different food this way. Another veggie I like roasted is Brussels Sprouts....butter, salt, pepper. Another amazing vegetable transformation!

                      Sorry, but I just made "french fries" out of sweet potatoes in coconut oil, and they were better than any okra I've ever tried. Okra is ok, don't get me wrong.

                        Glad you liked it lev96!! Thanks for reporting back:-)

                        And no doubt tfarny, sweet potatoes are definitely better than okra to me too, but okra was in abundance at that time, plus okra is a better choice for me right now since I have a few pounds to lose. But if it is was my last meal and I had to choose, I'd pick sweet potatoes over okra too! :-)

                          Here is a recipe that I tried last night where you cut the pods in half first: Oven Roasted Okra Fries | Lesley Eats

                          They were pretty blah but perked up with a little olive oil and vinegar plus celtic sea salt. Easy and quick way to fix okra...they are good later right out of the fridge, too.
