Okra and Mozuku Soup

A variety of okra grown on Okinawa, known as ‘neri’ in local dialect, is round in shape and a little longer than okra cultivated in mainland Japan. It’s also softer, and contains more fiber than pumpkin or burdock root. It’s usually eaten marinated, fried, or boiled, and with soy sauce as a condiment. Its harvest season is from July through September.
