If okra can put together a solid platform and run a campaign that captures the hearts and minds, it could be a valid contender.

Hm. There's no upside in replacing one vegetable with another.
Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Are you sure we haven't already elected corn?

I have it on good authority that Okra was born in Africa. I want to see the long-form birth certificate.

Look for pickled okra at your local grocery and try them. Delish.

As per TV's Cajun Cook Justin Wilson, gumbo cannot be called gumbo unless it has okra in it.
And okra must be "de - slimed" before you use it by frying in a pan it to get the oils out.

I like my okra slimy.
I also like it breaded and deep fried with some fra diavlo on the side.
(or a nice remoulade)

I probably don't know how to prepare it but I find okra slimy and weird.

Lately we are into alternative grains that are too cool for the rice aisle: Freekeh, millet, eikorn, etc.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Not a big fan of okra, but I do love cajun/creole gumbo.
Just black and white, rich or poor

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you
