Beef Okra soup

It's official. i'm addicted to one pot meals. One pot meals to me simply helps me avoid the mental stress of having to wash up more than one cooking pot later on (yeah, i'm that lazy :D). The fact that Okra Soup is one of the simplest Nigerian soups to make with very few ingredients cannot be hidden and it's definitely one of my go-to meals whenever i want to spend less time in the kitchen. It's also a versatile soup which can be cooked in various ways i.e plain, with leafy vegetables, with fish and so much more. You could check out the full list of Okra Recipes to take a pick. Okra soup is usually served with any form of "Swallow".

    A good pickup line is hard to come by (and you have to give the guy credit for at least making the first move), but here are 8 pickup lines that rank as the best of the "best." They may not get him your digits, but at the very least he won't leave with your handprint across his cheek. We'll definitely roll our eyes and groan, but these pickup lines are just cheesy enough to actually break the ice. And that's what makes a winning line in our book.

    1. Thanks Anon. For okra to draw, it's better to grate it instead of cutting it with a knife. Also, if you fry the okra in palm oil before adding the stock, it tends to reduce the viscosity.

    1. Hi anon,
      You can cook the okra soup without palm oil if you don't have where to get it around. Check my post on Plain Okra soup to learn how to prepare it.
