Hi everyone, how are you all doing? I love Okro or Okra as it’s known and called by different people from various parts of the world.
You see okra has this way of making you feel good after eating a plate. It’s not just the draw fest, it’s the crunchiness, texture and taste. The great thing about okro is that you can add it to lots of soups. You can mix it with vegetables, stews and even other dry ingredients. It just all comes together to make an amazing soup. What’s not to love?
I decided to call this one pot, because it was created out of tiredness, but I was amazed at the taste and smell. So so good. It just goes to show that sometimes great meals can be put together even when you are tired.
Lol, ok lets get started shall we
- Assorted meats
- Smoked prawns
- Smoked turkey
- Smoked hake (Panla)
- 3 tablespoons of locust beans (Iru)
- 2 tablespoons of dry pepper
- 1 tablespoon of Cameroon pepper
- 1 soup spoon of palmoil
- Knorr cube
- Medium sized pot
- Food processor
- Wooden spoon
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour: 40 minutes
Total time: 1 hour : 50 minutes
First of all, Clean the meats.
Next season with salt and add sliced onions. Cook.
Next add smoked catfish, smoked fish, smoked hake. Cook until the fish(Es) are all soft. This will also set the base for your cooking, once you get the stock right, it’s smooth sailing from there.
Once the fish(es) are all soft, add the blended pepper or dry pepper, (depending on your choice) Cameroon pepper, crayfish, locust beans and palm oil. cook for 8 minutes
Finally add the okro. Do not cook for more than 3 minutes and PLEASE DO NOT COVER THE POT
After 3 minutes. It should still have a crunch. That’s were all the goodness comes from.
That’s it, you are done.
Enjoy the smokiness of this soup. It was so amazing. Sometimes less it more.
That’s it from me today,
I’ll see you in my next post.
Love Duchess O.
