Goya

Goya is a very healthy vegetable originally from the islands of Okinawa, but because of its health benefits it has become popular all over Japan.

Goya is fairly bitter to eat, but it is rich in vitamin C. By frying it with eggs it can reduce the bitterness.

Goya chanpuru is a popular Okinawan dish and can be made simply by stir frying it with tofu, tuna or pork and eggs and seasoned with a touch of soy sauce.
