Dairy-Free Egg-Free Okra Patties

I don't fry much at all, but these are really good and this time of year we have lots of okra!

Original recipe from

  • 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 pound okra, finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Ener-G egg replacer prepared for 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the okra, onion, salt, pepper, water and egg replacer. Combine the flour, baking powder and cornmeal; and stir that into the okra mixture.
  3. Carefully drop spoonfuls of the okra batter into the hot oil, and fry on each side until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.
