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.
