My favourite food is okra. In fact, it is the only vegetable that I eat. An okra is long and shaped like a lady’s finger hence its other name – lady finger. It is green and has many seeds inside. When cooked, okra is slimy.
We plant a few okra plants in our backyard. When the okras are ready to be eaten, my mother will pluck and cook them for me. I especially like its sticky texture and eat this fiber-rich vegetable every Monday and weekend. My mother sometimes cook okra soup with lots of onions and garlic. I always slurp down several bowls of it as it is so delicious. I don’t think I will ever tire of eating okra.
