Okra, also known as croissant and scallop, is a species native to Africa. The outside looks like a green pepper, and the inside is a sticky and greasy sap. It has a sweet taste and soft meat. It is rich in carotene, vitamin C, a variety of B vitamins, as well as potassium, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients. A healthy vegetable. My family loves okra, so I will grow some okra in the small vegetable garden these two years. The okra grown by yourself is eaten as soon as you pick it up. It is fresh to minutes, and there is absolutely no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. It is a real green organic food. There are many ways to eat okra. Today, let’s make the simplest boiled okra with the most complete nutrient retention. There is a layer of fluff on the surface of okra, which hurts the stomach when eaten raw, so it is not necessary to eat okra raw, and it is best to rub off the fluff on the surface with salt before making it, so that it tastes much better.

Because the light soy sauce is salty, so the dish does not need to be salted. It is even better if it is eaten with the light soy sauce on the plate and topped with minced garlic.
