    I LOVE okra….sliminess and all. Actually, the slime is the best part! I made okra fries for the first time the other day and they were soft. I was expecting crunch for some reason. I guess that’s what okra CHIPS are for πŸ™‚

    I had okra for the first time recently at an Indian restaurant of all places and it. was. amazing. Mostly for the incredible spices they used but I’ve never noticed okra for sale up here!

    Have you ever eaten Pickled Okra? My bf made some the other weekend. I wasn’t a huge fan although I do love pickles. I do enjoy Okra sauteed with some diced tomatoes over rice. πŸ™‚

    I’ll be honest, okra kind of freaks me out. But if I ever get adventurous enough to try it, I’ll be sure to follow your instructions!

    It’s crazy that you know that guy from iwearyourshirt.com! Smart concept, and makes you go, why didn’t I think of that?! Not sure I could be him though–I like not being a walking advertisement πŸ™‚

        Ha, that is very true (and you would know!). Again, I love the concept (and I personally think you are a genius for thinking of it and making it happen)!! It just not something that is feasible or practicable for me (being a law student aspiring to have a job as a lawyer in 2011 and all). I’ll be sure to vote for my favorite t-shirt wearers though πŸ™‚

    I’m a fan of all things okra – your “fry” version sounds great! I’m gonna echo the comment and above and suggest the pickled version…jars of them have been known to disappear in mere minutes around my house!

    Okra kind of scares me but I might have to try Okra fries sometime. I could always just cover them in ketchup if necessary, right?! πŸ™‚

    I love polenta! I made a lasagna using slices of tubed polenta instead of noodles and it was really good. Hmmmm….I should dig out that recipe!

    I have to say, having never eaten okra, it kind of freaks me out. But my obsessive love for ketchup and anything one can dip into it might just persuade me to try those…

    I must admit I’ve never tries okra and never even hear of polenta. What is that? I’ll have to be daring and try the okra fries some day.

    And I love the shirt thing. That is just so cool!

    Besides the fact that you eat them with ketchup, what makes these “fries” exactly?

      I classify anything as fries if I bake them in the oven in a fry shape (i.e. long and slender) and I dip in a condiment.

    To those who are afraid of okra-the sliminess tends to get to most people-heat 1 tbsp of canola oil in a warmed skillet, halve fresh okra at the last minute and sear okra for about 2-3 minutes on each side without disturbing the okra. The high heat and quick cooking takes the slime factor out. Sprinkle with salt!
    Okra is also still in season until the first frost.
    Okra may or may not be my middle name!

    Thanks for showing us how to make them! I’ve been wanting to give these a try now – guess I better hurry before the okra is gone!

    So, I’ve always loved okra being from the south and all. However, the only way i’ve ever had it is fried. Recently, thanks to your posts about the okra fries, I decided to roast them up!!! Now, i’m slightly obsessed with them, and have been making them every night for a side at dinner! : )

    I tried Okra fries for the first time a few weeks ago…LOVED them! But again, it may be the ketchup. But so easy and a great way to eat a “Scary” veggie!

    I wish I liked okra. I really can’t get over the slimy texture.

    I need these. I want these. I need and want these! It’s hard to find fresh okra though. Must. Persevere. Mmmmm.
