Hello lovelies,greetings to you.How are you and how’s your kitchen?

I had to let go certain meals and made okro soup my regular soup.I enjoy the soup so it was not as if twas a punishment eating it regularly.

For those of you that want to watch your weight or watching weight rather,this will be of so much help,what okro does is that ,it controls the production of fat in the body,which in  turn decreases the total body cholesterol. I shedded so much fat with it.

It’s easy to prepare and not time consuming,once your okro is cut,you are good to go. I like cutting mine bold ,so as to get the feel of the okro, both the flavour and the crunchiness. Lol! Okro has a very super duper flavour  I love,that’s why I cannot get bored with it.

Okro soup is a delicious Nigerian draw soup, similar to ogbonno soup and loved by many.

It can be prepared with or without green leafy vegetables and can be thinly or boldly chopped. It’s a soup recommended for weight watchers.

It is the first soup usually introduced to toddlers, when they start eating swallow.

The okro should be thinly sliced because it’s babies we are talking about here.For adults consumption,you can slice in whatever size that suits you.

There are two major different methods of preparation,which are the boiling and the frying method.

In this post, I will go by the boiling method,i prefer this method in okro soup,because l love the okro popping green and all the nutrients intact.

The soup tasted good. I added little palm oil and shombo. The shombo pepper gave the soup a reddish appetizing colour.
