Ogbono Soup and Pounded Yam from Scratch – A tasty and hearty Nigerian soup made from Ogbono seeds (bush mango seeds) added with pre-cooked meat. And paired with smooth, tasty and filling Pounded Yam for an extraordinary African meal experience!
Ogbono soup is a hate or love it soup. No, I didn’t grow up eating it but quickly fell in love with it after moving to the U.S. It’s appeal? Chunks of meat and fish. Annnd it’s comforting and hearty.
For those few who aren’t familiar with Ogbono seeds, they are often times called wild mango, African mango, bush mango and dika. The trees bear edible mango-like fruits and the seeds (also called dika nuts) and are basically like nuts that can be eaten raw or roasted. Seriously I don’t know anyone who eats this as a snack but some say they do.
