So many times, we tend to make our foods similar way each time and it can be boring, tedious and exhausting. But know there are different ways you can prepare your cuisine and trust that it will come out well and still supplies the required benefits and more.

Okra soup is one soup I don’t get tired of eating and there are some many ways you can prepare your okra soup. A lot of time, I don’t always need a staple for it, just crunching on it. Read about the health benefits Okra soup

For this recipe, I used mushrooms and some tomato and pepper puree, and believe me it’s a must taste. My native ingredients (ground okpeye, ground uziza, and locus bean) are always a must in my soup, I can’t afford to miss that local taste. I also added some grilled lamb shank to make it richer and its soup is very delicious.
