I have to admit, Okra is one of my favorite vegetables. Whether you fry it, stew it, bake it, or pickle it, you’ll be speaking my language! That’s why I’m so happy that it’s that time of the season, and it partners so well with more acidic vegetables like tomatoes, which are in season too!
Did you know it’s also LOADED with what we need? Iron, Calcium, Manganese and Magnesium, B-Complex and Vitamins A, K and Folates. Even what some may consider off-putting, that ‘slimy’ characteristic actually assists in digestion!
Please join me in celebrating The Mighty Okra – this Saturday, 8am until noon.
