How To Make Okro and Vegetable Soup

I love vegetable soup, even more so when it is a combination of different vegetables. Like most of my recipes, the soup is easy to make, and super healthy. Okro is rich in magnesium, folate, fibre, antioxidants, vitamin C, K1, and A. Ugu contains calcium, iron, potassium, and manganese. It also provides a good amount of vitamin C, A, B2 and E.
