Pan Fried Okra
Who doesn’t love fried okra? A compromise – pan fried okra uses some fat, but not near as much as deep fried okra. And you still get that yummy fried okra taste. This recipe is a HUGE hit at our house.

Pan Fried Okra
  • 1 pound okra
  • ½ cup organic corn meal
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste
  1. Wash okra, cut off stems and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Don't let the okra dry too much as the water helps the corn meal stick.
  3. Combine okra, corn meal, and salt in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add the okra.
  6. Cook, with stirring, until okra begins to brown.
