Healthy Baked Okra and Green Beans



 Eat your veggies...


 

  • 4 oz fresh okra, chopped.
  • 4 oz fresh green beans
  • 2 eggs or 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used plain panko but there are so many others and seasonings)
  • Paprika to taste
  • Italian seasoning to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs cayenne pepper, or chili powder, or cumin, or red pepper flakes, or all!
Directions:
Preheat oven 425 degrees

In one bowl mix bread crumbs and all seasonings and spices. In another bowl whisk eggs. Set aside.
Fill another bowl with ice water and set aside.
Bring a pot of water to boil.

While waiting for boil, cut okra into 3rds of 4ths depending on size. Cut the ends off of green beans.
When boiled water is ready place green beans in for 2-3 min. When done submerge into ice water and dry on a paper towel.

Dip okra and green beans into egg mixture, shaking of extra and then into bread crumb mixture.

Place on a aluminum covered baking sheet, making sure none are touching each other.
Bake for 15-20 min until browned edges.


ENJOY!!!!
