Let's go to the kitchen dudes......
This soup is popularly called by the yoruba tribe in Nigeria as Ewedu soup and am proud to be part of them. The Ewedu is a green leafy edible vegetable which is often prepared into a delicious slimy soup. In English, it is known fully as Jute Mallow or Jew's mallow. Jute leaves are very rich in minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants.
This soup is very good for both infants and adults, especially pregnant women for easy digestion of food and ease delivery.
Oh... Enough of explanation and let's go to the kitchen.........
Ewedu plant ( just plant)
A pinch of Potash
Now let's get started.
Take your jute plants and take out only the leaves, rinse well and blend . Put the blended leaves in your pot.
Take your locust beans rinse and pour inside the same pot with the leaves
Add your Potash,salt and seasoning cubes. Place the pot on fire and cook for few minutes ( 3_5mins is okay)
Waoh we are done!
Am smelling the aroma already.yummy!!!
To enjoy the soup,make a side stew and make a solid food
like Semovita, amala(yam flour) , eba ( cassava flour) or pounded yam.
That's all.hope you guys enjoy our food today.
