Yucks! as my bratinella friend used to say whenever she sees my lunch with either okra or ampalaya. I love okra, even Oprah, she declared that okra is her favorite veggie. Most children do not like the taste of it, the slimy-sticky taste is the one they hated most. Another veggie that few people like is the ampalaya (bitter melon) but, it taste good as long as it's cooked the proper way otherwise it will be so bitter, but I don't care, I love it. I found an interesting recipe for okra which I will try next time:
But my favorite is the traditional steamed okra with bagoong.
