Afang soup is fast climbing the top of the list of popular Nigerian soup. If you are interested in exploring Nigerian foods, this delicious soup would definitely spur your interest in Nigerian foods.When I had my last child, I had this good friend of mine from Akwa Ibom that always comes to play with my children, she taught me how they prepare this soup and since then it’s been Afang soup back to back for hubby, he loves the soup like its going outta fashion..na wa o.Lol
So let’s make a delicious pot of afang soup, the list of ingredients below would make enough soup that would serve about 8 persons.
400g sliced Okazi/Afang leaves
250g Water leaves
1-2KG of any meat of choice.( I used beef)
20 to 25 cl red palm oil
Beef, Kanda and Dry fish,Smoked fish(Titus),stockfish
2 tablespoons ground crayfish
Pepper and salt (to taste)
2 Knorr cubes
1 medium sized Onions
Grind or pound the sliced Okazi leaves in the market, the sellers of these sliced Okazi leaves have a machine for grinding it. You can also grind it in your blender with a small quantity of water.Wash, drain and slice the water leaves into tiny pieces. I usually grind it with pepper and crayfish with the hand engine.
Soak the dried fish with warm water, remove the bones and wash thoroughly with just water also wash the stockfish head with warm water and remove the skin of the smoked fish and wash.
Now add the palm oil, crayfish and pepper. Once it starts boiling, add the water leaves and allow to cook for a while, for like 10 minutes, then stir and taste for salt.
Knorr cube, my favourite seasoning..
Add the afang (okazi) leaves, when the okazi leaves have softened and the water has dried up a bit, leave to simmer for about 5 minutes. Your Afang soup is ready!
Serve with Garri (Eba), Semolina Fufu, Amala, Cassava Fufu or Pounded Yam.
I just like this soup because it is made with just vegetables, and I love vegetables! They are nutritious, medicinal and contain fiber that helps the body cells to function properly. Don’t let your focus be on just Foods alone, also make sure they are also healthy for consumption.
