  • Okra


Okra is the seed pod of a tropical plant. The seeds are long and usually have vertical rib-like stripes. These green seed pods have a unique texture and a slightly spicy flavour. The slightly sweet undertone in the okra can be compared to the flavour of green beans. When you cook the okra, the vegetable will become a bit slimy and is ideal to thicken soup for example.
