Growing up in Texas, my childhood included a lot of delicious food. My mom, who was born and raised in Fort Worth, knew how to cook it all, and my love for fried okra started young.
Recently, my family and I visited a local farm selling fresh okra, so I brought it home and had to fry it up right away! The great thing about frying okra, is that you can adjust the recipe in many ways and change up the flavors whenever you feel like it.
Don’t want to use white flour?…try wheat!
Want to try frying in coconut oil?…You can!
Leave out or add other breading ingredients and make it just the way you want.
