Nigerian soups are simply delicious and easy to prepare. You will learn how to make some of the most popular soup here.

If you are a Nigerian or have visited Nigerian at one time or another you probably know what soups are used for. Soups in Nigeria serve as a common denominator for eating several other Nigerian foods. The popular Nigerian Eba (garri), fufu and Pounded Yam doesn’t go without a delicious soup

We have already made video for most of the soups listed here. Just follow the link to the individual recipe pages to find the videos

I would be starting with the Nigerian popular soups and then delve into local soups that are eaten by the Specific Nigerian ethnic groups. Take the Igbo people for instance, There are lots of different foods that are reserved for just the Igbo people, Likewise the rest of Nigerian ethnic groups.

In Nigeria, egusi soup is likely the most popular Nigerian soup, simply because it is accepted by almost every Nigerian. Second on this list is the edikaikong soup which gained popularity because of its nutritional value and ease of preparation.

The Nigerian edikaikong soup is very rich in vitamins because it is made with different types of vegetables.

The third on my list of Nigerian soups would be ogbono soup. This is popularly called draw soup because of its stretchy ability. Nigerian Obgono or Ogbolo soup which is third on my list of Nigerian popular soups is also easy to make and could be refrigerated for up to two weeks without losing its delicious quality or nutritional value.

The last on my list of Nigerian popular soups is bitterleaf soup. Nigerian bitter leaf soup is very popular and could be made in several ways by different ethnic groups. Ofe onugbu (as the Igbo man would call it) is one of Nigeria’s most delicious soup.
