One of my favorite soups is Ofe Ukazi . As a child, this soup would be served when I was ill to cheer me up and it is still one of my favorites. I have made this soup multiple times but keep forgetting to upload the recipe. Oops! Well, here it is FINALLY. And this time, I waited to take pictures before I devoured it!
This recipe is courtesy of Mother (aka Sugar in my Tea) who showed me how to make this soup over and over and over. However, I didn’t learn how to do it alone till I moved away. I asked her to write down the recipe for me and now, I would like to share it with you.
A lot of traditional Nigerian soups are high in fat, due to the ingredients they require i.e. egusi & palm oil. My suggestion for enjoying our food without killing your waist line is to watch your portion size of soup and sides i.e. garri, eba, wheat, farina, rice.
