Now, if only it were that easy to find fresh okra where I live.


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pounds fresh okra
  • 2 cup soy or almond milk
  • Oil for frying


  • Cut off and discard tip and stem ends from okra and cut into 1⁄2-inch-thick slices.
  • Stir okra into soy or almond milk. Cover and chill 45 minutes.
  • Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a medium bowl.
  • Remove okra from soy or almond milk and dredge into cornmeal-flour mixture to coat well.
  • Add okra to hot oil and cook until golden brown.
  • Remove from oil, drain on paper towels.
  • Serve hot!
