Okra is one of the few vegetable crops that grow nicely in Florida in summer.  At home we call this “okra popcorn” because it is so crispy and delicious!

Yield: 4 servings

1 Tbsp. olive oil 
2½ cups sliced okra (½-inch rounds) 
¼ cup cornmeal 
½ tsp. dried basil 
¼ tsp. salt.

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a shallow baking dish with the olive oil and set aside. 
2. Place the cornmeal, salt and basil in a medium bowl and mix well. Add the okra and stir until well coated with the mixture. Add the coated okra to the prepared baking dish. 
3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until crispy, stirring occasionally. To make it especially crisp turn off the oven and let the okra set in the hot oven until dry.

Okra or lady's finger is very delicious. A lot of people don't like Okra for it's sliminess but for me it's the other way around. I like the slimy taste it has especially when partnered with a soy sauce dipping. This post surprised me because I do not know that it possible to make popcorns out of okra. I will make one soon. Good job!

All things considered, here are the certainties on that one.
