Happy short weekend oh!!
Short as always but at least I have this vegetable soup to be thankful for. I wrote about the first one here. If you have not read it, pause, quickly read and come back to this. We will wait for you:)
Cooking this Vegetable soup is quite easy. I am trying my best to make all my recipes very simple and easy for anyone to cook and making sure the ingredients are not difficult to access depending on wherever in the world you are. Some ingredients like Irú could be difficult to find especially when you are in locations outside the south west, Nigeria. Interestingly, a lady posted on Twitter some weeks back asking about how it can be preserved or how it can be made into powder form (particularly for the flavour it brings into food) so that people can easily access it wherever they are. I also find it weird that a lot of people dislike the smell(Don’t blame me oh). I still find it hard to understand that because I am in so much in love with it that I can eat it RAW!!
Anyways, I am always glad to have you back reading, learning and practicing with me the recipes I share. Very soon, you will start seeing more enticing pictures of my cooking and I am hoping it brings more ease to your life in the Kitchen!
Come, let’s learn together….
7 pieces of Tomatoes
5 pieces of scotch bonnet
1 big sized Onion
Dry fish (As much as you want)
A tablespoon of Irú
2 cubes of Maggi
Step 1: Blend your Tomatoes, Pepper and Onions together
Step 2: Cut the vegetables and wash thoroughly and ensure there is no sand in it. After that, use hot water to parboil until it’s slightly softer.
Step 3: Put a pot on fire and pour the oil into it
Step 4: When the oil is hot, pour in the Irú and some sliced onions.
Tip: Irú gives a lovely smell when frying for vegetables
Step 5: Once it’s fried, pour the pepper. Allow to fry well. Add Maggi and salt. Also add the fish
Step 7 : Once it’s dry, reduce the heat, add your vegetable and cover the pot to allow steam
Serve with any type of swallow and enjoy!
