Nigerian Okra Soup With Tomato Stewed Chicken, Fish

 a serving of okra soup with stewed chicken and fish
Dear Diary,
This soup is very easy to cook and fast too. First,
 I made sure that  was done with cooking the chicken  and making  eba, before facing the okra soup.
It was super duper delicious! The aroma, sweet, the taste... heavenly.

Cooking Steps For This Okra Soup And Chicken:

  1. The washed, salted chicken is put in a fry pan with some chopped onion. The heat is turned on.
  2. It boils, begins to look dry, so I add some vegetable oil by the sides of the pan, cover for four minutes, checked and turned the chicken over, added a little stew before covering to simmer.
  3. Chicken boils for another four minutes before the pan is put in the microwave oven for five minutes. Chicken is turned over and left for another five minutes before bringing out of the oven and putting on paper to drain oil
  4. Back to the soup: 
  5. Washed and

How To Cook Okro Soup With Ewedu Leaves

A plate of okra  soup cooked with ewedu leaves.
Okra soup is very good when cooked green and fresh. Ewedu leaves are good for weight loss. They are both full of vitamins which can be destroyed by heat, reason
we do not overcook these greens. For mums introducing their babies to solids, this soup is it. I think babies love this soup cos it makes swallowing fufu very easy.  Try giving them with amala, soft eba, soft wheatmeal, soft semo or any other swallow but not too soft please. This soup cooks very fast.

How to cook okro soup with leafy vegetables

Okro soup is mostly served with solids. Somtimes I cook this without palm oil and serve with a little tomato stew. When cooked without palm oil, it tastes better and I love it. If allowed to cook okro the exact way I like it, I won't add palm oil. Okro can be grated if you like timy bits. I like to chew okro in my soup. This soup can also be enjoyed without any form of swallow, especially for
those of us trying to lose some weight. I hope I've started losing sha.

1kg goat meat or beef
2 seasoning cubes
Salt to taste
Water, just enough to cover the meat after steaming 
1 medium onion to steam the meat
1 teaspoon fresh ground scotch bonnet pepper. 
1/2 cup ground crayfish
1 pack dry stock fish
2 medium sized smoked cat fish
1 tablespoon locust beans (Dadawa) Optional
1 tablespoon palm oil
1 small bunch leafy vegetables. I used ewedu leaves but you can try with ugu, uziza too is great here
3 cups chopped okra

*Before you cook this okro and vegetable soup, wash and cut

Okro soup
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 ?

 This okro soup is actually the third or fourth on the blog but they are all cooked differently. Chubby Ella posted Okro soup cooked without meat . There is a post on okro soup with ewedu leaves cooked diffently from the Yoruba ewedu soup. The okro with ewedu post has detailed step by step cooking pictures. I never liked okro until I started cooking it myself.

Okra, Ugu, Ogbono Soup Recipe With Cooking Pictures To make this weekend

We have more than enough Nigerian soup recipes on the blog already, see more soup recipes  but, just to let us cook something a bit different this weekend, I added this delicious pot of Nigerian draw soup. Try it and you will come back for more. Trust me, there'll be left over if you are not firm on the
eaters. It didn't take long to cook as the frozen beef and snails thawed very fast under running water. Someone in my house does not eat carbohydrates for dinner but could not resist the aroma and look of this soup as he walk into the kitchen. He asked for it though begging me to make the eba very small so he doesn't gain back all the calories he managed to burn at the gym this evening. What is life without eating what we enjoy? There are people who only derive joy from eating good food, aside that, life is not so sweet, so, why treat food like it's poison. Never reject good food. Refusing food doesn't make us lose weight o, in fact experts say "eat everything but in small portions" Our bodies need every nutrient to be healthy and fit.. Soup and eba doesn't make you obesed if you eat the right portion, not when we pack one big bowl of garri with soup containing two pieces of beef, three pieces of snail, fish, 3 long kpomos etc, tell me why you nor go fat explode? Eat the right quantity, nor be say you eat till you belch like shrek the movie. Eat this soup and see how fresh you'll look.

Ingredients For This delicious Nigerian Soup
  1. 1 kg Beef
  2. salt to taste
  3. 1 medium sized onion
  4. 3 cups water to start with, if soup is thicker than you want, you can gradually add water in small quanties while soup cooks.
  5. 1/2 cup palm oil: This salad master pots do not need oil, I only add oil when I cook for the kids because they are still growing, when I cook for me and hubby alone, the food is colored with a little ground tatashe not oil.
  6. 1/2 cup ground ogbono
  7. 1 cup ground crayfish
  8. 2 cubes maggi crayfish 
  9. 1/2 cup Locust beans (dadawa) This is optional
  10. 4 cups chopped okra (okro)
  11. 1 small bunch ugu vegetables (Flutted pumpkin)
  12. A handful of uziza vegetable (Optional)
  13. 4 large Snails (Optional)
  14. 3 medium Smoked catfish
  15. 1 teaspoon ground fresh pepper. I used my pepper sauce   
  16. Hot Eba (Garri) for serving with the soup. Any fufu of choice

  1. Boil the meat with salt, seasoning and onion. While meat boils,

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.


  • 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)
