Okra, Frozen

(Okra, Frozen)  Fresh okra should always be as green as the okra in this photo.  Unfortunately, we rarely see fresh okra in the markets; and when we do, most of it is turning brown, so we usually buy frozen whole or cut okra.  Okra, also called lady fingers, or bhindi in Indian cuisine is a plant grown for its fibrous pods full of round, white seeds.  Okra originated somewhere near present-day Ethiopia.  Okra is great in soups and in a variety of other dishes.  The high fiber content helps to thicken soups and sauces. See the nutritional chart below.

Okra, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
