It’s official. i’m addicted to one pot meals. One pot meals to me simply helps me avoid the mental stress of having to wash up more than one cooking pot later on (yeah, i’m that lazy :D). The fact that Okra Soup is one of the simplest Nigerian soups to make with very few ingredients cannot be hidden and it’s definitely one of my go-to meals whenever i want to spend less time in the kitchen. It’s also a versatile soup which can be cooked in various ways i.e plain, with leafy vegetables, with fish and so much more. You could check out the full list of Okra Recipes to take a pick. Okra soup is usually served with any form of “Swallow“.
