It is no news that I love okra soup either plain or as ila alasepo like it’s called in my language, in fact, I cook okra/ila alasepo at least once a week and it is always in my freezer. My not so little one only jumps on the okra soup […]
Nigerian soup recipes
Tomato-less buka stew recipe? Who would have thought a time would come and this recipe would be the most sort for. It is no news that tomato is now gold in Nigeria. The good news is, you don’t really need tomatoes to make yummy and delicious buka type of stew. […]
My parents were around at mine from Nigeria and my kitchen was super busy. You know why? I promised to make different meals especially Nigerian soups everyday for a week. I made this egusi soup on day 2 and it was loved by all. I used 3 types of vegetable leaves and one of them is my favourite, uziza leaves.
My first experience of afia efere (white soup) was at my uncles wedding some few years ago and boy did I enjoy it? I loved every bit of it. Everyone wanted to have a taste of the afia efere also called whte soup at the engagement party, it was a hit. I asked my sister in-law for the recipe and she was really happy to share it with me.
I was on the phone to my mum and our conversation soon turned to food. My sister cooked obe gbure elegusi some years back and it’s still the best gbure soup I have had till date. TBH, I have not been able to beat it. There is something about the soup that have never stopped me talking about it, the taste was out of this world, it was amazing.
I visited mummy AB shops (My local African shop) the other day and she had fresh fufu and the first thing that came to mind was edikaikong but unfortunately for me, she didn’t have fresh ugwu but I didn’t let it stop me from treating myself to some good old edikaikong and fresh fufu.
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.
It would be a sin if I don’t share this lovely hearty recipe with you all. How are you doing today? This recipe is classic, it is simple and above all yummy. The dish is called okra pepper soup, it is mostly eaten by the Uhrobo people in Nigeria. Seriously, a part of me should move to side of the country mainly for their good food.
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.
I hail o my Delta people, today’s recipe is egusi pepper soup. Yes, the same egusi (ground melon seed) we use in making delicious efo elegusi, lumpy egusi and egusi ijebu. When I started this blog some months back, one of my besties from Delta State gave me some recipes of the dishes cooked from her side.
