edit: a thought just occured to me whislt thinking along these lines, I wonder if an Extract of this could be made as a Gluten replacement? Xanthan gum goes almost exactly the same when hydrated and that IS used as Gluten replacement.
Might be worth a shot!
Wonderful stuff. You have not lived until you've eaten okra cooked by the Greeks, the Turks, the Lebanese, the Syrians, and /or especially the Indians. So many delicious ways to prepare it! HAS to be young and tender, though, like any decent vegetable.
One of my favourite ways is to chop it into 1/4" rounds, add salt, chili powder and garam masala, then deep-fry it until crispy.
