Jute Plant…Mulukhiya…Mediterranean Healthy. No more aging!Vegetable
Mulukhiya has been mentioned to me by more than one reader, and I have promised to talk about it. Mulukhiya is the Arabic name for this plant. It is known as a Jute Plant in English or Ewedu or Rama in parts of Nigeria. As Dianna mentioned previously on the blog, it can be eaten as a soup with bread or it can be eaten with rice.
Jute is a very popular green vegetable world wide. It is rich in betacarotene, iron, calcium and vitamin C. If you were recently told that you are anemic or if you are undergoing chemotherapy or are pregnant, Jute may be a healthy choice for you. It is also contains antioxidants which are excellent for aging and can help to keep you young. As I have recently entered my 30s, I can say anything that will prevent me from aging is a must. It also contains a high content of vitamin E which is great for nerves and diabetes.
Please feel free to add Jute or Mulukhiya recipes.
Happy Friday and GO BEARS!!!!!!!
