Thank for sharing Healthy Nigerian Recipes, although when I saw the title "Healthy Nigerian Recipes" I was expecting to see Bitter leaf or Ogbusi related kind of recipe/soup preparation.

How to Prepare Ogbono Soup

Ingredients for Ogbono Soup

    Assorted Meat and Fish: Beef, Shaki, DryFish, Stock Fish
    Ogbono Seeds: 2 handfuls
    Palm Oil: 3 Cooking spoons
    Vegetable: Frozen Spinach (you can also use Pumpkin leaves or even Bitterleaf)
    Crayfish: 1 handful
    Pepper and Salt - To taste
    1 medium size Onion
    2 Stock cubes (Maggi/Knorr)

Tools for Preparing Ogbono

    Cooker
    Pot
    Spice grinder for grinding ogbono seeds
    Spatula
    Chopping board
    Knives


Before you cook Ogbono Soup

    Grind the Ogbono with a dry mill.

    Cut the frozen spinach when it is not completely defrosted. It is easier that way. Then when completely defrosted, squeeze out the excess water.

    Cook the assorted meat with the stock cubes and onion. If you will use Shaki, remember to start cooking that first, then add beef when almost done.

    Grind crayfish and pepper.

    Boil some water and set aside.


Cooking Directions for Ogbono Soup

    Pour the palm oil into a clean dry stainless steel or aluminium pot. Set on the stove and melt the oil at low heat. Remember, only melt the oil, do not allow it to heat up.

    Once melted, turn off the heat and add the ground Ogbono.

    Use your cooking spoon to dissolve the Ogbono in the oil.

    When all the Ogbono powder has completely mixed with the oil, add the meat/fish stock (water from cooking the assorted meat and fish). Set the heat of your cooker to low and start stirring. You will notice the Ogbono start to thicken and draw.

    Keep stirring till the Ogbono has completely absorbed the meat stock.

    Add a small quantity of the hot water and stir till the Ogbono has absorbed all the water. Repeat this process till you get a consistency that is shown in the video below.

    Making sure that your heat is set to low, cover the pot and start cooking. Once it starts to simmer, stir every 2-3 minutes for 20 minutes.
    So what you'll do is: every 3 minutes or so, open the pot, stir every well, scraping the Ogbono that sticks to the base of the pot, cover the pot and cook for another 3 minutes.

    After 20 minutes, the Ogbono should be well cooked and you will begin to perceive its nice flavour and aroma.

    Add the assorted meat and fish, ground crayfish, salt and pepper to taste. The Ogbono may have become thicker from the cooking. If so, add a little bit more water and stir very well. Cover and cook till the contents of the pot is well heated up.

    If you prefer your Ogbono Soup without vegetables, turn off the heat and serve but if you like to add a vegetable then keep reading :)

    When the contents of the pot have heated up, add the vegetable (frozen Spinach used in the video). Stir very well, cover the pot and turn off the heat. Leave to stand for about 5 minutes and serve with any Fufu recipe.

How to Prepare Bitterleaf Soup

Ingredients

    Washed and squeezed bitterleaf - A handful
    Cocoyam – 10 small corms
    Red Palm Oil – 2 cooking spoons (You may need a bit more)
    Assorted Beef – Includes best cut, shaki (cow tripe)
    Assorted Fish – Dry Fish and Stock Fish
    Pepper, Salt and Ground Crayfish (to taste)
    Seasoning – 3 Maggi or Knorr cubes
    Traditional Seasoning: Iru or Ogiri - 1 teaspoon

Before you cook Bitterleaf Soup

    Make sure that the bitter leaves are well washed, such that there is no trace of bitterness left. If not, wash and squeeze it more. If the bitterness cannot be completely washed off (which is usually the case with most washed bitter leaves sold in the market), boil it for about 15 minutes and wash in cold water.

    how to pound cocoyam

    Wash and cook the cocoyam till soft. Remove the peels and use a mortar and pestle to pound the corms to a smooth paste (as shown).


Cooking Directions

    Boil the shaki (cow tripe), stock fish and dry fish in 1 litre of water till they are well done. First sign of a done shaki is that the cuts will start curling on itself.

    Wash the beef and add to the pot of shaki etc. and continue cooking. When the meat is done, add 3 cubes of Maggi/Knorr and cook for 5 minutes.
    how to add cocoyam to the soup

    Add pepper, ground crayfish, bitter leaves (if they have not been parboiled) and cook for 10 minutes. Then add the cocoyam paste (in small lumps) and the palm oil then go to step 5.

    Note: If the bitter leaves were parboiled to remove the bitterness, then for step 3; add pepper, ground crayfish, the cocoyam paste (in small lumps), the bitter leaves and the palm oil. In other words, add all the ingredients at this stage.

    Cover the pot and leave to cook on high heat till all the cocoyam lumps have dissolved. You can add more water if you feel that the soup is too thick.

    Add salt to taste and the soup is ready

Efo Riro is a rich vegetable soup that is native to the Yorubas of Western Nigeria. The vegetables that can be used to cook this soup are water leaves and pumpkin leaves. If these are not readily available where you live, frozen spinach is a very good substitute.



Before you cook Efo Riro

    Soak the stockfish and dry fish for a few hours. The length of time depends on how hard the stock fish is. Mine soaks in under 1 hour. When soft, clean the fish, remove the bones and separate them into small pieces.

    Cut the frozen spinach and wring out the excess water when fully defrosted.

    Prepare other ingredients: pound/blitz the pepper, cut the onions and grind the crayfish.

Cooking Directions

    Start cooking the shaki first with as little water as possible (see video below) as it is the toughest meat in the bunch. This soup should have as little water as possible so add small amounts of water at a time and top it up as you cook.

    When the shaki starts to curl, add the dry fish and stockfish.

    When the shaki is almost done, add beef, stock cubes and onions and cook till all the meat and fish are well done.

    Top up the water to about half the contents of the pot. Add the crayfish, smoked fish, pepper and palm oil.

    Cover the pot and cook at high heat till the oil has changed from red to yellow.

    Add the spinach or any other soft vegetable: pumpkin, water leaves etc.

    Cover and cook still it gets a good boil, taking care not to overcook the vegetables. Add salt to taste and leave to simmer for 2 more minutes.

HOW TO PREPARE NKWOBI

Ingredients:
Cow leg (cut into small pieces)
½ handful of crayfish
1 tablespoon ground dry pepper (or more if you like spicy food)
1 ehuru/ehu/african nutmeg
2 tablespoons potash (akaun)
Uziza leaves
½ cup of palm oil
1 onion bulb + more for garnishing
1 knorr cube
Salt to taste



Directions:
Wash the cowleg well and add to a pot. Use a pressure pot if you have one to save you gas/electricity/time. Cut up the onions and add to the pot. Add the maggi and some salt to taste. Boil the meat till it's well done. Strain the meat from the water and set aside.

Put the potash in a small bowl and add about ½ cup of water. Strain into the pot you'll be cooking the nkwobi with. This is to remove all the sand and debris in the potash.

Heat the potash a little and the add the palm oil. Stir till it thickens.

Blend the crayfish and ehuru using a dry mill. You can also add the pepper and blend too.

Add the meat and blended crayfish to the oil and mix well. You can turn the heat on now so that the nkwobi is piping hot. Add a little salt if needed.

Garnish with cut uziza leaves and onion and serve.

 ENJOY!!!

I think this should be Nkwobi not Nwobi, anyway the message is gotten.
I must admit this is one of my favorites Igbo food.
