this is my favourite soup ever, as i am nigerian...you need to try this! absolutely delicious!
This recipe is AUTHENTIC, Egusi is eatten all over West Africa, this is the Nigerian version.
Call me crazy but collard greens work better than spinach with this recipe. This was GREAT. My husband's parents are from Liberia and they are big fans.
This recipe really satisfies my craving for diversness in cuisine. It tastes simply wonderful and I would love to see more recipes native to the African continent!
It's a very nice soup if you're entertaining a number of people. It's unique, filled with all kinds of good stuff and very, very, very rich. It almost has a "bisque" quality to it, but "nutty"...
The spinach can be replaced by any type of green leafy vegetable, we especially liked this soup using shredded cabbage.
Delicious. I cut the on-line recipe in half and it worked just as well. I also used chicken stock in lieu of water.
The use of pumkin seeds can be a useful substitute if Melon Seeds are not available, enabling an approximation of the flavour of this dish.
