Owo Soup

Owo Soup

Last Year I reached out to one of my followers on Instagram because I saw her post about making Owo soup. There were comments that testified to the goodness of her Owo soup so I decided to ask her for a recipe and one year later here we are. She sent in her recipe and pictures and I decided to make the soup myself today and I loved it. I could not stop licking my plate. I took some pictures as well in addition to her pictures. Hope you enjoy this soup as I did.

  • 5 snails

  • 1 teaspoon full of potash
  • 50 CL of naturally processed Palm Oil (naturally processed Palm oil is considered the healthier option)
  • 2 seasoning cubes
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 small chopped onion (back in the days onion wasn’t used simply because it was a luxury. As a matter of fact if an elderly person tasted your Owo and chomped on onions she’ll scold you. Lol so chop it down properly it gives a nice flavor)
  • 3 pieces of Uda (Pepper soup spice) – deseeded
