      I'm a southern girl, and I just love fresh okra. This is a wonderful recipe, it was just great...I like extra seasonings, so I added some garlic powder to taste. Ummmmm!

      Okra is one of my favorite things and I loved this soup. I used beef broth and I don't think it would be the same without it. Spinkled with flat parsley for a fresh flavor. Straight into my okra cookbook this one goes!
