NOTES : In the sixteenth century, slaves brought a unique plant to the New World that has stood the test of time. It thrives in tropical climates and is known for its natural thickening agents. It's called okra and often times you'll find it fried, but we discovered a way to enjoy okra without the added fat and calories.
