I have been craving egusi soup with bitter leaves for a while now. I’m one of those few people who like bitter leaves and drink the juice especially because of its benefits. And for the first time, I’m using cow leg in my soup. I use other types of meat but the cow leg was available when I wanted to cook, so I used it. Egusi soup is a Nigerian soup it is prepared by both my Igbo and Yoruba family. However, this post focuses on the Igbo preparation style and it is called ofe egusi in Igbo.
