Fried Okra is also known as “Southern Popcorn” – but I confess that I'm never one for deep frying. I considered trying to cook them by shallow frying, but in the end I decided to try baking them – and it worked really well! The coating I have used is what has now become my “standard” – used on things like chicken tenders. It's a mixture of almond flour and flaxseed meal. They're both low in carbs but I love how the nuttiness of the flaxseed cancels out some of the natural sweetness of the almonds.

Okra is a great source of many vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6, thiamin, folic acid, vitamin B2, and zinc. Nutritional data is good for low carbers – 8 pods (about 100g) contains 7g carbs, and 3g fiber. So net carb count is 4g – which is awesome! So if you've never tried this vegetable before, give it a go!

How to Make Low Carb Baked Okra

Slice the okra into small pieces, about 1cm wide, and discard the stems.

In a large ziplock bag, add some almond flour, flaxseed meal, salt and pepper. Shake to mix well, then add the okra. The slight “gumminess” of the okra means that no egg is needed in the breading process!

Place the coated okra pieces on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat, drizzle them with olive oil, then bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. You may need to move them around occasionally for even coloring.

Transfer the okra to a serving bowl and enjoy them warm. They are SO moreish!
