    NoThyme2Cook's Note:

    I have so missed fried okra since I've been gluten-free, but I could never get the corn meal to stick to the okra while I was cooking it. Tonight...SUCCESS!! I'm posting it here while I can still remember what I did.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup vegetable oil, may take even more (do not use olive oil, it can't stand high heat)
    • 1/2 cup rice flour
    • 1 1/4 cups gluten-free cornmeal
    • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (for color and a little added flavor)
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (sort of a binder)
    • 1 quart whole okra, stem ends removed


    1. 1
      Heat canola oil or high-heat tolerant vegetable oil (not olive oil) in a large skillet until the end of a wooden spoon sizzles and bubbles when you place it in the soil. Oil should be about a half inch deep in the skillet.
    2. 2
      While the oil is heating, combine the rice flour, cornmeal, yeast, sea salt, and xanthan gum in a plate. Stir with a fork until well mixed.
    3. 3
      Place the okra in a single layer on top of the dry mixture.
    4. 4
      Mash it gently with a fork to flatten it and coat both sides with the mix.
    5. 5
      Heat the okra pieces in a single layer in the oil, watching closely and turning when they are brown and almost crisp.
    6. 6
      As the pieces are done, place them on a paper towel lined platter to drain.
    7. 7
      Watch out! You'll eat them all before supper if you're not careful!
