Oven-fried Okra

Ready for a crispy fix? You had me at oven-fried okra. This recipe courtesy of  Love & Zest turns a traditionally deep-fried treat into a healthy side you can gladly indulge on. Thick cut okra is baked in a crispy coating of egg and whole wheat breadcrumbs for added protein and fiber. Fun fact: The slimy “goo” inside okra pods is called mucilage and is high in soluble fiber. This soluble fiber is like the kind found in Metamucil and can help you stay regular.
