    The first to review!! This is pretty good actually. I used frozen cut okra, thawed, and a regular tomato, diced. I had to roast a little longer than called for since the okra was kind of damp from the defosting, but the results were good..nice and crunchy. And so easy.

    I am new to the south, but my husband was raised here. He says that these taste just as good as when his grandmother fries them.. and he hardly EVER eats veggies, so it was a big compliment. These were great!  -  02 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought it was OK. It wasn't slimy and the flavor was pretty good, but I thought it tasted crunchy and maybe undercooked. We ate some and then I put it in the oven about another 7 min, but it still tasted the same. Some of it was stringy too! So yes, the taste was good but the texture was kind of funky.  -  04 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
