Oil less okra soup is a very simple, plain and green soup prepared without palm oil, it is tasty and just like any other vegetable soup. If you have been looking for a healthy way to cook okra soup, this very okra soup recipe is for you, palm oil is not added to it and you will still get the best taste.

In this oil less okra soup, I used goat meat, dried fish and fresh mackerel, other things like crab, shrimp and fresh fish could be added too if you have them handy; feel free to use your preferred meat to make this. You can even skip the goat meat and use only fish to cook this soup if that is what you love.

I love okra soup with uziza, the flavour and the heat this leaf add to the soup makes it even more unique; you might want to use ugu or spinach, they still work for this soup.
