Nigerian Okra Soup

Nigerian Okra Soup

Okra soup, also known as okra soup, is a popular Nigerian dish that is made with okra, a green vegetable that is rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and K. This soup is a staple in many Nigerian homes, and it is often served with fufu, a starchy dough made from cassava. 

With the right ingredients and a few simple steps, anyone can make a delicious pot of okro soup at home. Whether you are a fan of Nigerian cuisine or just looking to try something new, okro soup is definitely worth a try!


  • 1 pound of fresh okra, chopped
  • 1 pound of meat (beef, chicken, or goat meat)
  • 2-3 cups of water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons of palm oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of ground crayfish
  • 1 tablespoon of dried or fresh pepper
  • Salt and seasoning cubes to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of ogiri or iru (optional)


  • Wash the meat thoroughly and boil it in a pot with 2-3 cups of water until it is tender. Set the meat aside and keep the broth in the pot.
  • In another pot, heat up the palm oil or vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they are translucent.
  • Add the chopped okra to the pot and stir well for about 5 minutes. This will help to reduce the slime that is often associated with okra.
  • Add the meat broth to the pot and stir well.
  • Add the ground crayfish, pepper, salt, and seasoning cubes to the pot and stir well.
  • Add the cooked meat to the pot and stir well.
  • Reduce the heat and let the soup simmer for about 10-15 minutes. This will help to thicken the soup.
  • If using ogiri or iru, crumble it into the soup and stir well.
  • Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  • Serve the okro soup hot with fufu or any other starchy side dish of your choice.
