Nigerian Egusi soup Nigerian soup Nigerian soup recipes

Egusi Ijebu


Eweso omo Alare, This is one of the easiest Yoruba local soup you can ever cook. Egusi Ijebu as the name implies is from Ijebu and it is very popular too. Le bae is from Ijebu but we hardly cook this soup but the days he feels nostalgic, I have got to get myself in the kitchen and make the soup. This time around I got a bit of help from him especially when my egusi soup started clumping.

Ofe Akwu


I thought I love banga soup (Niger-Delta style) until I tried Ofe Akwu (Ibo style) and God I have been hooked since then. Ofe Akwu is versatile, affordable and easy to cook. I’m yet to try abak atama soup, basically because of the Adrian fruit (Uyayak). I have a thing for that fruit and I always say to myself It will never go into my soups but hey! never say never.
