Ogbono (Ibo) or Apon (Yoruba) is the seed of the African wild mango (Oro). The seed is dried and then milled with some crayfish in order to make Ogbono soup powder. This is by far one of the easiest and fastest Nigerian soups to prepare. You can choose to make use of your preferred protein – Beef, dried fish and fresh fish all make great accompaniment to the soup.
