To cook okro soup looking this fresh, you don't add everything to one pot. Wash, salt and cook your shrimps (without water) in a separate pot. Boil fish with just salt and onion in a separate pot. Now, cook the okro soup with all other ingredients, crayfish, salt, knorr seasoning cubes, pepper, okra, periwinkle, drops of palm oil, water, all ingredients come in here and the fish stock too. When you taste, and soup is great, almost ready, that's when you bring in the cooked shrimps and fish without crumbling the fish (no stirring), Turn off the heat and enjoy.
- Fresh fish
- king prawns
- Seasoning cubes
- Onion to boil fish
- Dry catfish (optional)
- Palm oil

|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.

There are times you find yourself enjoying some food you thought was just not for your palate. This soup can win over rice eaters. Talking about rice eaters, have you tried serving okra soup with rice? Hubby loves it so much while I can't bring myself to try. Another friend confirmed it's delicious but I'm yet to

|Nigerian native soup.|
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.

|seafood okro soup.|
Seafood okra soup is cooked without meat, just sea animals. It can be cooked by anyone. It doesn't have to contain all edible sea creatures. There were times I cooked seafood okra soup with just mackerel (titus) alone as a source of protein and it turns out really delicious. It's very pocket friendly and can be made with thousands or even a few Hundred Naira. I always said I don't have a favourite when it comes to Nigerian Soups, just make it delicious and that's all, however, with my recent love for different versions of okra soup, maybe it now qualifies as my favourite soup. I love very tasty okra soups especially cooked without beef or goat meat, just sea animals.
If you live in Lagos and desire this exactly the way it looks in that picture ?

I ate oha soup once and loved it but have never really tried cooking myself. When The Hon Judgejudy shared this on her page, I requested for her recipe to enable me cook and to also share with other readers. Here it is. Below is the recipe. This is our Nigerian soup recipe to try this weekend.
OHA SOUP INGREDIENTS:
- Oha leaves (shred with your hands, not a knife)
- Uziza leaves sliced
- Meat and smoked fish
- Native thickener, achi or ofor
- Ground crayfish
- Onions for steaming meat
- palm oil
- Seasoning cubes
- Pepper to taste
Steam/boil our meat and fish. Season with salt, cubes, cameroun pepper and onions. When the meat and fish are as tender as you want, add extra water, the water should really be for the amount of soup

|An appetizing serving of light ogbono soup.|
Ogbono soup can be cooked light, thick with mush ogbono, thick with much vegetables or light with ugu (fluted pumpkin) or uziza ( hot leaf) vegetables added sparingly. I love everything draw soup but light, a bit watery is my favourite. Give me this plate of ogbono soup with plenty crayfish and pepper this morning and you'll see me push this bowl of cornflakes aside. Why am I even eating cornflakes when Saturday Mornings are for akara and akamu? It's raining and the akara lady might not be there and again, this cough and cold won't let me try home made akara.
Ok, back to Ogbono soup. Is anyone cooking ogbono today? I'm preparing to cook the suggested bitter leaf soup for this weekend. Please take a few pics, even one or two is still ok, to share with us.
I like my ogbono soup light just like this but with roughly ground particles of crayfish showing, and

|Bitter leaf soup (Ofe onugbu).|
This soup makes me want to cook ofe onugbu this weekend but I don't know if it will go well with eba. I know that the owners of this soup, the Ibos serve it with akpu fufu or pounded yam and it's delicious. Yams are so expensive and scarce now that I wouldn't want to pound this my two remaining yams, it's like kind of waste o. I'd rather boil or make some yam porridge with vegetables. If it's ok to serve onugbu with garri, then I'll try the soup this weekend and have some fun enjoying from the East. Any Ibo reader here? Please reply me oh. Ok to serve bitter leaf soup with eba? I know egusi bitter leaf soup goes well with eba, even ogbono bitter leaf goes well although My preferred bitter leaf soup for now is with egusi.
I'll search the blog now to se if we have any onugbu that looks exactly like this so we use that recipe.

Nigerian vegetable stew
|A serving of Nigerian vegetable stew with rice, fries and titus fish|
This assorted vegetable stew is cooked with ugu vegetables, waterleaf, green amaranth, and tomatoes. Served with boiled rice and Eba. I enjoyed it with boiled rice, others preferred with garri. The Irish potatoe fries were added for enjoyment but taken off after snapping because I couldn't find ketchup to spread on them. There was no long cooking involved as green vegetables don't do well with heat.

|Cow tail Nigerian white soup. Lick your screen if you like it.|
There are so many different white soup recipes online from, and for different world cultures. It's best to include "Nigerian" in ours because it's exclusively Nigerian and richer than many other white soups I have seen.
