My Mum's Egusi Soup Recipe

February 22, 2019

Egusi soup is one of the most common soup among the west african people. Some people love their egusi with lumps others fried and some plain.
My Mum's egusi soup recipe is one of my favorites!, she carefully prepares it with love and i think that's what matters the most. She doesn't like the fry method because she believes it's not healthy and she also taught me that whatever you use in making the soup will determine how tasty the soup will turn out. Really learnt a lot from my mum *winks*.
Join me in the kitchen as i make my mum's egusi soup recipe

• Egusi
• Dry cat fish
• Fresh ground pepper & tomatos
• 1 teaspoon ground cray fish
• 1 cup stock water
• Sliced uguw leaves (or any desired avegetable)
• Beef or fish
* stock cubes


1. Boil the fresh pepper in a clean pot. Add some of the boiled peppers to the egusi and mix well, then pour the whole egusi into the pot of boiling pepper. Allow the egusi to boil with the pepper

2. Once the egusi has boiled add the locust means, stock water, palm oil, cat fish, ground cray fish, seasoning cubes and salt to taste.
Let them boil for 2 minutes before adding the beef or fish.

3. After everything has boiled together add the vegetable and allow to boil for a minute before stirring it. 

4. Carefully stir the the soup, this is to allow the vegetable to mix with the egusi. You can cook for another minute if you like your vegetable to be soft.

That's My mum's egusi soup recipe. You can enjoy it with any swallow of your choice
