Found some Okra at the markets on the weekend, so decided to cook them up using my mum’s old recipe… Simple but tasty. Not everyone likes the texture of these vegetables (slightly slimy) but they are so good for you. http://www.healthyfoodhouse.com/okra-the-wonder-vegetable-22-the-amazing-health-benefits-of-okra/
