How to cook ogbono soup without oil

A serving of Nigerian ogbono soup cooked without oil.

Ogbono soup cooked without oil is very delicious and nutritious too. Doesn't have that palm oil feel. For fat free Nigerian soup cooking, try this. Palm oil is added to almost all Nigerian soups, but come to think of it, this oil never enhances the taste of any food. It only adds that bright colour that can be gotten by adding some good vegetables. Try cooking some meals without palm oil and see the difference. They taste way better. Method is very easy and straight forward.

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup ground ogbono 
1 cup ground crayfish
1kg beef
1 large sized dry cat fish
2 seasoning cubes
Salt to taste
a handful chopped ugu vegetable (Fluted pumpkin)
Water to cover the meat after steaming
4 red bells pepper (Tatatshey)
1 teaspoon pepper
2 medium sized onion

BEFORE YOU COOK THIS OGBONO SOUP:
First of all, wash and cut the vegetables, wash and blend together the onion and red bell pepper, boil in a pot with one seasoning cube until dry and set aside. Grind the ogbono seeds and set aside. Steam meat with onion, the remaining seasoning cube, and salt only, let it boil with the juice in the beef first until pot begins to dry up, then add water for stock.

How To Cook Egusi Soup With Waterleaf

Egusi soup cooked with waterleaf.
 Nigerian Egusi soup can be cooked with vegetables like (ugu) (flutted pumpkin), amaranthus (Aleho, green), tomatoes, bitterleaf, Spinach,waterleaf and so on. Egusi soup tastes great wih all those green leafy vegetables but honestly, waterleaf has a way of softening the soup and making it so enjoyable. When I cook egusi with ugu leaves (Flutted pumpkin) a pinch of ground ogbono is added to soften soup a bit without making it drawy. With waterleaf in egusi soup, you don't need no softener, just enjoy.
For those who can't find waterleaf, use spinach.

INGREDIENTS:
4 cups egusi
2 kg beef
1 stock fish head
1/2 cup ground crayfish
2 medium sized smoked catfish
pepper to taste
1 bunch waterleaf
1 tablespoonful palm oil (You can add more)
1 medium sized onion to steam the beef
Salt to taste
Seasoning cubes
5 cups water to start with, you add more as you cook to get your desired thickness.


PREPARATION:

  1. Steam beef and stock fish with onion, pepper, seasoning and salt till almost

Recipe for Cow-leg white soup



Nigerian white soup is cooked without palm oil even though sometimes I add a few drops of oil to mine. This cow leg white soup is cooked with no oil. Recipe is same as other white soups just the addition of cow leg to this pot. There is no special method of cooking this, just cook cow leg soft and then add to your boiling soup. Cow-legs are very tough but this cooked really fast because I pressure cooked the leg first. If you have our white soup recipe, it is basically the same method with just twists and twerks each time I cook the soup. When you cook with cow leg, it's best to add some other form of protein like fish, beef or chicken because cow leg on it's own is almost tasteless, I added some tiny pieces of

Recipe - Groundnut dry afang soup served with low carb guinea corn fufu

Groundnut dry afang soup served with low carb guinea corn fufu.
 Groundnut (Peanut) soup can be cooked with or without vegetables. Here the delicious soup is cooked with very dry afang vegetable I have preserved for some time. This is the best groundnut soup yet. The little water leaf added softness and nutrition to the pot. Groundnut soup is one of the easiest Nigerian soups to cook. Nigerian groundnut soup can be cooked with any green leafy vegetable of choice. There are no strict methods, can be cooked with raw or roast groundnut depending on the taste you enjoy more. Doesn't require many ingredients to taste great. In this recession, this soup and okra soup are the first two soups I will recommend to anyone looking for less expensive delicious soups to cook.  Someone said cooking Nigerian meals can be very intense, but I promise you, cooking this soup is not difficult in anyway. Even if one doesn't have any experience with Nigerian soups, this is a straight forward kind of soup that requires neither skill nor experience. Just get groundnut and some green vegetables ready and your soup is cooked in no time.

INGREDIENTS FOR GROUNDNUT DRY AFANG SOUP:

  • 2 cups roast groundnut
  • 2 cups dry afang
  • 1 kilo beef
  • 1 smoked titus (mackerel) fish
  • pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Onion to boil the beef
  • 2 knorr seasoning cubes
  • 2 tablespoons palm oil
  • 1 Large bunch water leaf (You can use spinach)

How to make oats coconut fufu

Oats coconut fufu served with green vegetable (Fluted pumpkin) soup

Oats coconut fufu is made with desiccated coconuts and some oats. The quantity of coconuts is more that the oats. The aim is to eat less carb and the addition of the quaker oats here is to help with binding as coconuts have no starch. This was totally enjoyed and very easy to make. I used quaker oats and in less than 10 minutes, my fufu was ready, smooth and fluffy.

Oats coconut fufu is very good for people looking to lose weight and for those who want to cut down on carbohydrates. Diabetics can also enjoy this meal as the sweetness of the coconut is no longer there, just the chaff. Coconut fufu served with vegetable soup like this is very nutritious and great for the whole family.
There is also guinea corn coconut fufu recipe on the blog.

Recipe: How to make guinea corn fufu from scratch

Gunea corn fufu with soup

 Guinea corn is awesome  in terms of nutrients, and can provide us  with vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin, as well as high levels of magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorous, and potassium, as well as nearly half the daily required intake of protein.  It is not only recommended for babies as adults too need all those vitamins.

How to make millet fufu from scratch



Millet fufu is made almost the same way as amala, tuwo and other 'flour' forms of swallow (fufu).
First mix a little quantity with cold water (watery) and put on the stove, let it boil very well as you continue to stir, boiling cooks the starch and helps your final fufu to hold together. Let it boil and change in colour a little as if the starch is overcooked before you start pouring in more powder and stirring to desired softness. Also click on this link to check out How yo make rice flour fufu (tuwo)
Wheat meal fufu from scratch.

Millet contains uniquely high content of nutrients, including impressive starch levels, very high B-vitamin content, as well as calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, magnesium and so on.

 Rivers State native soup served hot.

I like the way that this soup looks, tells me it tastes good too. I wanted to try it and post my pics but this looks too good to wait. For those who like very thick soups, you can make this as thick as you want. I like my soups light, a bit watery.
This ws shared by Tico kitchen, you can order any time any dayby calling 07063206091 Or use her recipe below to cook. Chubby Ella has posted her recipe for Rivers Native soup and this is almost the same thing except for some ingredients, Chubby's soup is cooked mainly with sea food, she added ngolo ( sea shells) periwinkle, shrimps etc. I love the sea food in that one and the simplicity of this too.

HOW TO COOK BANGA (AFRICAN OIL PALM FRUIT) SOUP

CAN YOU SWALLOW ANY FUFU FOR BREAKFAST?


Banga soup is cooked with the juice extracted from boild and pounded palm nuts. Very delicious and particularly loved by The South South people of Nigeria. It goes well with starch but you can enjoy with any other form of swallow; semo, eba, amala, pounded yam etc.
This soup caught my attention at a first glance, I don't know maybe it's the fresh looking, smooth yellow swallow beside the soup but this just made me crave some swallowing right now. Can you swallow in the morning?

This soup is by Home Made meals Nigria, she is an event caterer and can be reached on 08058299703.

There is a banga soup recipe on the blog, cooked by #Dressedtothenines. Find it HERE

Nigerian Native Soup: How To Cook Native Soup

Nigerian soup
Nigerian native soup by Tico kitchen.

Native soup is what some of us call white soup and then others argue that if we say it's white soup, then, there shouldn't be a drop of oil in it. Native soup can be cooked light or thick depending on what you like. This here is light. Can be thickened with pounded yam, cocoyam or achi depending again on what part of Nigeria you learnt from. Different tribes have different local names for their versions of white soup. In the South it's thickened with yam but I especially love thickening with boiled and well pounded cocoyam (A food processor does a good job making it drawy and slimy like) because of that slimy, soft kind of feel on the throat oh. Thickening with cocoyam leaves the soup in between draw and just normal. Not like ogbono but just ok. I'm not a meat person, maybe that's why I get drawn to food cooked with seafood only. I so love that there is no beef in this soup. I can live the rest of my life without craving one day for meat especially beef and mutton. I add meat to cooking because of my family I love fish, I love seafood. If you can cook Nigerian white soup, then you can cook Native soup. See white soup recipe here.
