Ingredients

1 3/4 pounds fresh okra
1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°.

Wash okra; trim ends, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Combine cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; stir well, and set aside.

Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl; stir in okra. Let stand 10 minutes.

Remove okra with a slotted spoon; discard remaining buttermilk mixture. Combine okra and cornmeal mixture, tossing to coat okra well. Place okra on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 40 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally.
