Palm nut soup recipe

Palm nut soup or palm butter soup is my favorite West African soup. The soup is very famous in Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.

There are many different ways to make this soup and today I’m going to show you my version of palm nut soup made with smoked fish, super easy to make and so yummy !

Ingredients:

  •  1 can of palm nut cream  (You can get in your African stores)
  • 2 smoked fishes (or use any meat)
  • 3 fresh tomatoes, mashed
  • 2 onions, grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  •  1 tsp black pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Bouillon cube (Maggi)
  • Fresh chilies
  • 1 cup of chopped green onion (optional)
  • 1 l water

Step 2:  Heat the pot, and add the smoked fishes, season with black pepper.

Add garlic, tomatoes and onions and pour the palm nuts cream in the pot.

Add one liter of water.

Step 3: Add bouillon cube, chili powder (optional) and salt to your taste.
