Crispy Spiced Cauliflower and Okra [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
If you can't find okra or aren't a fan, make this with just cauliflower, or cauliflower and mushrooms instead! Wonderful with a side of basmati rice, this is a fast and very healthy dish that can be prepared easily on a weeknight. The spices are quite fragrant in this, and will not only satisfy our taste buds, but also offer us many medicinal benefits. Spice liberally!

Crispy Spiced Cauliflower and Okra [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

2-4

Cook Time

20

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 cups okra, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon whole cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon high-heat oil (avocado, coconut, canola, grape seed)
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour (or potato starch)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F and place tablespoon of oil on a metal baking tray.
  2. Chop okra into 1-inch pieces, discarding top caps, and pointy bottoms. Chop cauliflower into uniform florets. Place both on baking sheet and use your hands to toss in oil. Sprinkle with rice flour, all spices, and salt, then toss to coat again.
  3. Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes, toss well for even browning, and bake for an additional 10 minutes until cauliflower and okra are both browned and crispy. Sprinkle with freshly chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lemon juice just before serving. Enjoy with a side of basmati rice, a nice tamarind chutney, a simple dal, or a la carte.

Could you replace okra with eggplant?

If you roll it in a bit of flour and add it as last to stir-fries this can be partially prevented however, many people like its sliminess and use it as an integral part of dishes like gumbo...try as I have I just cannot stomach poor okra and it is not its taste but its consistency indeed... (the same consistency as discomposing vegetables at the bottom of a forgotten vegetable tray...sorry! this is the image I get whenever I see okra...)

Deep fried okra is good. I usually pan fry it with a breadcrumb coating. It's not slimy this way, just tasty. Perhaps not as healthy though.

I can't stand okra - I don't like vegetables with hair on them. Terrible, terrible - very popular in the south, however.
