Okra is a vegetable high in vitamins and nutrients, but that doesn't mean it needs to get stuck in a humdrum veggie dish. This cornmeal cake recipe is the perfect way to get a healthy dose of nutrients in a fun, tasty treat. The cakes are pan fried for a crispy golden brown outside with a soft, spicy center. Dip them in the refreshing cilantro lime yogurt dip for a taste that is savory, sweet, and spicy all at the same time. The dip uses Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt for a light and healthy base infused with zesty lime juice. Bring a tray of okra cornmeal cakes to your next lunch meeting or enjoy the batch yourself. You'll be glad you did!
