I've got just one okra loving-kid. That's an amazingly low statistic because in south Louisiana and the surrounding parishes, families are raised on the stuff. Here's a healthier version. One thing I am certain, if you never liked it before, you won't like this either. Note: Make sure the okra is dried on the outside after rinsing and before coating with oil. Oh, and I think it's best made with young, tender okra pods. Umm, one more thing, even good grilled.

Ingredients Nutrition

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes until they turn brown and become crisp.
