Default Okra seed recipes?

Someone gave me a bag of old okra so I simmered it and collected the white seeds. After umpteen rinses, the snot is finally gone; I hope!

Why do I ask? Because once upon a time I had some recipes for them before I had 2 cups of them but cannot find them now. Searches show up a few interesting uses but I'd love input from any of you southerners willing to admit that you've had some honkers you didn't want to toss so found a way to make something yummy with part of them. (Yes, they are good plain though not very flavorful; if I were on my own, I'd add them to stir fry for bulk though that's pretty boring.)

Anyone?

Salt, Pepper & Olive Oil on a cookie sheet and bake 45 min on 450. Now this pertains to thin sliced okra.. Not just seeds.. :^)

No pods left at this point; I should have asked first I guess. I've broiled/grilled/baked old ones that tasted fine but these were beyond woody plus had sat in Alabama in a car for a few days. Any ideas on how to use the "pearls"?

Plant 'em next spring for an Okra crop all summer. You only need the soak in water and then strain out the seeds. If they have been cooked, the seeds are ruined for sprouting.

I've never seen recipes or seen a dish made with just okra seeds; or the white seed before it dried hard.

After doing a little research, I found as long as the seeds are soft, they are eatable like peas. Semi-hard seeds can be ground and used as a coffee substitute. Hard seeds are not eatable like the soft, but can be ground and used like flour.
