The protagonist of our day to day, the Okra. It is a flowering plant in the mallow family, related to cotton and hibiscus.
Sometimes Okra is referred to as "Lady's Finger" for the elongated and delicate shape. The fruit is rich in nutrients such as Vitamin A, B, C, K, B6, Magnesium, Folate as well as many beneficial antioxidants.
Being low on calories and carbs the Okra has many health benefits as it contains high quantities of protein and fiber. The pods are very easy to cook and add beneficial nutrients to a balanced diet.
