Okra is a vegetable, a good source of minerals, vitamins, and fiber. It contains a distinctive gooey liquid used to naturally thicken sauces. The taste is mild, but it has a unique texture with peach-like fuzz on the outside and small, edible seeds on the inside of the pod. Okra has two varieties of colors, green and red.
