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.

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
