Okra Soup With Goat Meat And Stock Fish Served With Pounded Yam

Okra soup recipe
 Okra soup served with pounded yam
What I like about this okra soup is that because it's so fresh and tasty, you end

up eating more soup than carbs, which is healthy. After clearing my pounded yam, I picked a spoon and did justice to the soup. This soup is extra tasty as testified by all who ate it. 

It can be served with eba, semo, wheatmealamala and even starch. Even those who don't like okra soup enjoyed this particular one.

A boiling pot of okra soup.

  • Fresh okra
  • Some green
  • Leafy vegetable
  • Goat meat
  • Stock fish
  • Smoked cat fish
  • Crayfish
  • Palm oil
  •  seasoning
  • Onion 
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Water

  1. I boiled the washed goat meat and stock fish with some chopped onion, salt and pepper. "No water added save that in the washed meat"
  2. When the pot is getting dry, I add some water, seasoning and salt to taste. Then a half dessert spoon quantity of palm oil and covered.
  3. After boiling until the meat and stock fish are a bit tender, I add some ground  crayfish and continued to cook.
  4. When the soup begins to feel and taste cooked, I ain't feeling the salt, so, I add some salt to taste before pouring in the chopped okro and just a handful of ugu vegetable.
  5. As soon as the okro boils ONCE, the heat is turned off.
  6. I served my okro soup with pounded yam, it can be enjoyed with semovita, eba, amala or even starch.
Okro soup takes like the shortest time to cook, so it is advisable to get your fufu ready before commencing the cooking of this soup. I love to chew okro, that's why I chop them this way. 
Dear Diary, if you do not like this pieces  in your soup,  chop tiny pieces or pound after chopping to make it even smoother.
