Fall is coming in and with that means the last of our Community Shared Agriculture vegetables. Last week, we got a whole mess of okra. I froze some for later gumbo, but decided to bake (fake fry) the rest. I've read about coating vegetables in mayonnaise, before dipping in the flour/cornmeal mixture, but hadn't tried it. I decided tonight was the perfect time to try it.
and the finished product:
Overall, it wasn't my favorite. That said, I did manage to eat all the okra and jalapenos in one sitting--hence, it wasn't THAT terrible ;) I made eggplant parmesan with the eggplant slices, and that was more forgiving. I'm thinking I should have just fried it.
