Bursting with Okra

Okra is coming out the ears of most farmers in our area during July and August. Being from the south, I grew up loving fried okra, but I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate it into my menu with a healthier flare.

This recipe has by far been my favorite way to prepare okra without having to dunk them deep in oil to get that crunchy texture I love so much.
