The best thing to come home to, in my opinion, is the smell of fresh soup bubbling on the stove. So imagine my pleasantly surprised state a few days ago when my mum decided to pull out an old recipe of (Ghanaian) soup which has a light soup base but the secret is a little bit of peanut paste and a couple handfuls of spinach.
Now, I don’t know which of the two significant ingredients makes the soup as delightful as it is, but I’ve had 3 bowls of fufu in the last 4 days or so and I am not complaining one bit! It’s made me consider having a page just for food – considering how much I love it. Reviewing food was always going to happen on my blog but I think I’ll start with my mums soup. Obvs not as a review but just an appreciation post. Mother, I appreciate this soup very much. What I don’t appreciate is the new rule she made about me having to my make own fufu from now on – that is not fun or enjoyable!
Anyway, who else loves having mushrooms in their soup? I simply LOVE them! Once you bite into the mushroom be ready for a surprise as they explode with all that soupy goodness. It makes me tastebuds tingle just typing about it!
She also added some assorted meat including what I assume to be beef (could be goat or lamb), mackerel, shaki (tripe) and much to my dismay – kobe. Kobe is the worst tasting fish in the whole entire sea, I’m sure of it. Because of the Kobe, I rate this soup 8/10. Before she added it, it was definitely a 10.
This is defiantly a top contender for my favourite soup! Palm nut soup is currently the holder of that title, and the love I have for that is plentiful, especially when eaten with Abiti3 – but that’s a story for another day, sha!
How many of you guys also enjoy this peanut/spinach soup? Do you have it regularly or is it just as new to you as it is to me?
