Okro Soup

We prepared this soup with a heart full of love for some special folks.

They specifically requested the use of Palm-oil, and so we prepared it the traditional way, mummy taught.

Okro is full of fibre and really delicious.


We loved the crunch from the fresh Okro, and then the slight bitterness + sweet aftertaste from the bitterleaf.


Goat Meat just took the soup from a “AA” to a “”AAA”. Goat broth is super rich, thick, and then the marrow… goat marrow… ahh, just divine.

You know the kind of soup that makes your eyes roll to the back of your head and then come right back in pleasure.


This soup did just that. It was delicious, and made me miss my Mummy.
