Okra is an edible flowering plant that is extremely nutrient dense. Okra is high in fiber, folate and vitamin C. This green power plant is also an antioxidant and a good source of potassium and calcium. Okra is popular all around the world. It is fried in cornmeal batters and used to thicken gumbos in the Deep South. Okra is showcased in a lot of Indian dishes pickled, stir fried and in bhindi. The Caribbean uses okra along with seafood and cornmeal while in the Philippines it can be found steamed or boiled in salads.
