This recipe is perfect for people (like me) who don’t really like the texture of okra, but still want to eat it. Â Okra has some great health benefits. Â It contains Vitamins A and C, and is also a good source of iron and calcium. Â It is thought to help stabilize blood sugar and cholesterol levels – the mucilage, which gives it it’s characteristic slimy texture, picks up all kind of toxins in the body and helps get rid of them.
These patties (although not that pretty) take away most of the mucilage characteristics, because you’re adding the okra to a dough. Â Feel free to add any additional vegetables you see fit.
So far this is my favorite okra recipe!
