Not so fried okra

The hubby and I have gained a few pounds here lately (him from excess soda consumption, me from pregnancy) and we both LOVE fried okra. However, it can be high in calories. Solution? Bake it 🙂

I bought a package of breaded okra from the grocery store and bakes in in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.

Needless to say, it wasn’t great and I’m not sure if we’ll try it again. The hubby complained of a powdery flavor, but hey I tried. This may be one recipe that you can’t just bake.
