In a stew, soup or sauce, okra is one of those “love-it-or-hate-it” vegetables. It has a deliciously runny texture and a melt-in-your-mouth quality that could either be incredibly appealing or… not. Okra soup is an ubiquitous dish in West Africa. Just like all the other soups, you have as many variations as you have ethnic groups, villages or available proteins. I have tried it with beef, chicken, smoked fish, snails, all of the above. So once you have the basic recipe in your arsenal, you can explore variations and discover your favorite combination.
