View Full Version : (X) LC--Fried Okra

A southern treat that I love is fried okra. We used to cut okra and roll it in corn meal. Don't do that anymore

I take a bag of frozen cut okra and allow it to defrost, then I roll the pieces of okra in the powdery type parmesan cheese and fry it.

It is delicious. Even my husband, who is a picky eater loved it.

There is only 1 net carb in 3/4 cup of cut okra, so a serving of this is probably less than 2 carbs when you figure in the parmesan cheese.

How do you fry the okra? Do you deep fry it in oil?

I was looking for low carb recipes as I get my Thanksgiving dinner together. Trying to add new low carb with traditional dishes.

I deep fry it in my "fry daddy". Only takes about a minute per batch.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm going to try this, it sounds good.
