Oven Fried Okra
Instead of the combination, either all flour or all cornmeal could be used for the batter. Serve this as is for a typical (but healthier) southern side dish, or serve it with ketchup for okra "fries". Fresh, sliced okra could be used also, just increase the cooking time by about 5-10 minutes. The cayenne gives the okra a nice kick, if you don't like spicy food reduce it by half.
-1 lb frozen sliced okra, thawed
-1 cup whole wheat flour
-1 cup cornmeal
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp cayenne pepper
-2 eggs, beaten
Whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt and cayenne in medium sized bowl. In batches, use a slotted spoon dip okra in eggs, and stir to coat well. Transfer okra to flour mixture, tossing to coat. Spread okra out on a greased baking sheet. Spray the okra with cooking spray. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
