Nigerian Inspired Pepper Soup
Hey my loves!! I feel like we haven’t chatted in a forever since the holidays. How have y’all been?? Well, your girl has been a little under the weather and trying to get my life since Thanksgiving is finally over (THANK GOD!) and my house guests are gone (HALLELUJAH). I woke up yesterday with a little itch in my throat so I immediately went to my fridge to see what veggies were on their way out so that I could whip me up a quick soup. Once I got started my “quick” soup ended up taking 2 hours to make since I really wanted all of my flavors to pop, and BOY do they pop. In short this soup is happiness in a bowl for me, I can’t help but smile with every bite. Besides tasting AHHMAZING it’s super easy to make and it’s worth every second of waiting, not to mention it will clear your nasal passages all the way out and soothe a sore throat like no other. You can serve this soup with rice or add potatoes. I decided to give an African favorite fufu a try and all I can say about that is YES LORD *does praise dance around kitchen* so if you have an international market near you I definitely recommend giving it a try because it will change your life. Also this is a spicy dish so, if spice isn’t your think I would recommend only using 1 scotch bonnet pepper or even try taking the seeds out to tone down the heat.
Of course when you guys try this out be sure to comment below or tag me in your pics on Instagram and follow me while you’re a it (if you’re not already). I’ll be peeping back into your inbox soon I have 12 days of Christmas coming up where I will be sharing all of my holiday drinks, apps, and brunch favs. Until next time my babies **kisses**
