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

Afang soup cooked with groundnut
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.

Ready for vegetables


  1. Wash and boil the beef with salt and onion until tender.
  2. Add more water if stock is too little in the pot, at least 4 cups to start with but you may need to continue adding water as you cook because groundnut soup thickens fast. Add smoked fish, check for salt, add seasoning cubes, palm oil and pepper, then cover to boil before adding the ground peanuts. Stir the groundnut to mix well and cover, leave it to boil very well.
  3. Check that the soup is not too thick, if you are satisfied with the consistency, add the vegetables now, stir and cover for at least 2 minutes, open and check again. If soup is not too thick, check again for salt and if you are satisfied with the delicious taste and aroma already filling your kitchen, turn off the heat and serve with any kind of fufu or boiled rice.
