... is pretty much one of my favorite foods to eat. I know that most non-southern people have absolutely no clue what fried okra is. I also know that if you finally convince them to try it, many of them are... not amused? to say the least!
I have hardly cooked at all before now (other than a couple of soups, because it's hard to screw up soup?).. but am trying to find somewhat healthier and lower carb alternatives to my old favorites. For some reason, I've developed an obsession with Indian food? I have no idea why.
But anyway.. I met with success last week when I made "Spicy Broiled Whole Okra" from the cookbook "1,000 Indian Recipes". It was extremely tasty! Best of all, the pound and a half of okra that the recipe calls for totals 50g of carbs. I know that's way less than an equivalent batch of fried okra... and my tastebuds are satisfied!
The hardest thing was not eating the whole batch at once... :)
