    Hello before I make this Please explain it says 2 or more chicken broth or water. Is this 2 teaspoons, 2 tablespoons, or 2 cups? Definitely looks heavenly. Thank U for sharing your recipes with us. In my household, back in Africa, summer breaks were the only times we did not have sit down meal, on weekdays. And okra soup was only cooked on weekdays. So you know what happened to my okra when there was no parental supervision, right?
