HOW TO MAKE FLAVOUR PACKED OGBONO SOUP AND POUNDED YAM WITH 10 PICTURES.So today this post is called Ogbono soup re-defined with pounded yam. I actually gave it that name since I was in Secondary school. Anything I remember this delicious food it brings good memories of when I was still little.

I know so many people reading this must think, re-defined how? There are not that many ways to make Ogbono soup. Yes you will be correct about the method but what makes mine re-defined are the ingredients. I will surprise you and I can bet that you will never see Ogbono soup and pounded yam the same way again.

But before we proceed, promise me you will share this with at least a person on your contact. And please don't hesitate to also drop your comments below, that's my motivation. Also remember to follow me up for more tips on how to make your delicious meals. Let's get started!!!

Ingredients


For Ogbono Soup

1) 1-2 pounds meat, (oxtail, stew beef , tripe and kpomo (cow skin)

2) 1 cup smoked fish

3) 1 cup diced onion

4) ½ cup ground Crayfish

5) 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon (adjust to taste bud)

6) 3 cups chopped greens (spinach)

7) ⅓ cup palm oil.

8) 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

9) ½ cup ground egusi (optional)

10) 1/2 cup ground ogbono

11) Salt and pepper to taste

For Pounded Yam

1) 2-3 pounds of Nigerian Yam

How to Make Ogbono and Pounded Yam From Scratch

1) Peel your yam carefully and don't extra careful not to remove a lot of yam during the process. Checkout for any bruising in the yam and remove the spots away with the tip of your knife.

2) Cut your yams into large chunks and wash them to prevent discoloration and place them inside a bowl containing water until it's time to use. Add yams in a medium pot with water- enough to barely cover the yams salt to taste, if desired.

3) Cook until it's soft, and tender. Drain out the water left in a colander. Reserve some water from the yams to use for blending. 

4) For those who has food processors at home, blend your yam for 20 secs and check for the smoothness. I use a spoon to move yam around the food processor as necessary to ensure even blending. Add about 2 tablespoons or more reserved water as needed. And for those of you who are used to pounding with mortal, pound your yam until it's stretchy and soft.

5) Wrap in a parchment paper (for the health conscious or plastic wrap). Serve with ogbono soup with you're about to below.

6) In a medium–sized saucepan, boil meat, season with salt and pepper until tender (approximately 30-60 minutes depending on the choice of meat). You can shorten this process in half by using a pressure cooker.

Boil the cow skin and tripe together or you may do so separately until tender. Use your best judgement. Remove cow skin, tripe and add to the pot of boiled meat. Add smoked fish, if using any. Be sure to have enough stock from the meat (about 3-4 cups).

7) Mix your grounded ogbono with red oil.

8) Add boiled meat, crayfish, and scotch bonnet pepper to the pot respectively. 

9) Simmer and let it cook for about 10 minutes or more depending on your choice. Add chicken bouillon or cubes, if desired.

10) Add more stock water as needed to get to desired thickness. Then add spinach cook for another 2-3 minutes, turn stove off and serve piping hot.

And when you're done your soup is supposed to look exactly like this.

Now you're good to go, serve this piece with everyone around you and let us know in the comment section what you think about this. Give it a try and you will come back here testify about how delicious this was.

And oh, do you know that this Ogbono soup reheats well? Let it rest overnight and reheat the following day. You’ll be surprised at how the flavors have melded together. Pair it with some pounded yams or other choices of fufu for a more indulgent meal! Enjoy your meal the way you want. Don't overeat all because the food tastes delicious.
