Okra is one of my favorite vegetables! Not only does it have many health benefits like fiber (which is good for cholesterol management).
It also contains folic acid, vitamin B, and vitamin A. It is low in calories, and one of the green vegetable with the highest levels of antioxidants. The okra is a good source of important minerals such as iron, calcium and magnesium.
Baked okra are the newest hit in our house!
Great as a snack, side dish, or as an appetizer!
It is crunchy and yummy!
