Almond Egusi Soup

Hi guys. How are you all doing today? Todays recipe is another one of my healthy eating post. I try as much as possible to make sure all my meals are focused in less oil, good carbs and prepared the healthier way.

This post was inspired by an Amazing Lady Called Abiodun Leonard. We also call ger Oby. She is the powerful lady behind fitness redefined a health group on Facebook . She has done such as great work on everyone in the group by being such a positive impact and inspiration.

She made this soup and I tell you when I saw it I was like, that will be one sweet soup. She proceeded to explain that it didn’t and also has less oil, carbs and fat than Egusi. Which I had to agree. Although you can’t take away the taste of Egusi. Egusi is delicious. But I wanna try and accommodate some of my followers that want healthy options. My followers inspire me and I love them? So I said I will try it and share the outcome. πŸ˜‰

Ok lets get started shall we πŸ™‚

INGREDIENTS :
100g of ground Almond
Assorted meats
Smoked turkey
1 large Tatashe
3 Habenero peppers
1 can of plum tomatoes ( 3 large tomatoes )
Iru ( Locust beans )
Dried shrimps
Dried catfish
Stock fish
Spinach

UTENSILS :
Blender
2 medium sized pots
Wooden spoon

Prep time : 15 minutes
Cooking time : 2 hours
Total time : 2 hours : 15 minutes

Method :

Wash the meats properly, add blended onions, salt and a little bit of knorr cube. Blended onions penetrate faster and makes the meat more juicier. Boil until almost tender.

Next add the smoked turkey and the other dried fishes. This will serve as a base for the stock. Once you get your stock right, you are in good position to wow your taste buds.
