Otong Soup – Efik Style Okra Soup by Sisi Jemimah

Otong Soup – Efik Style Okra Soup by Sisi Jemimah

Published

on

Otong soup is a popular traditional Okra soup recipe from the Efik people of Cross River, South Eastern Nigeria. Otong soup is very similar to the Yoruba Okra Soup; Ila Alasepo. The major difference is the addition of Ugu leaves which isn’t a requirement in the preparation of Ila Alasepo. If you cant source Ugu leaves, you can use spinach, Water leaves, or Kale instead. If you cant source Uziza leaves, which is optional anyway, you can use ground Uziza seeds instead.
