EGUSI SOUP (NIGERIAN CHICKEN STEW)

2015-10-02



Egusi Soup (Nigerian Chicken Stew) image

Egusi soup, also called melon soup (because the Egusi seeds come from a melon of the same name! You can use sunflower or pumpkin seeds though) is a delicacy enjoyed all over West Africa, especially amongst Nigerians anywhere they live. It is arguably the most popular Nigerian soup, especially in the Southern part of that country. There is some discrepancy regarding what should be in the stew - beef, chicken or goat. The precooked deli chicken helps to speed up the process! I have modified a Sandi Richard recipe. Enjoy!

Categories     Stew

Time 1h

Yield 6-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup egusi seeds (or sunflower or pumpkin)
  • 1/2 large Spanish onion, chopped
  • 10 medium raw shrimp, deveined and peeled
  • 1/4 cup water or 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 large Spanish onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 5 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and keep liquid
  • 2 (5 1/2 ounce) cans tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 1/4 cups beef broth
  • 2 whole chickens, cooked from the deli department (2 lbs each)

Steps:

  • Egusi Paste: Chop seeds in blender. Add chopped onion to blender as you are cutting it. Add shrimp to blender. Blend until it becomes a smooth paste. You will likely need a little water or broth to help it blend.
  • Stew: Heat oil in a large pot. Add finely chopped onion to oil. Stir until soft and translucent. Add green pepper and sitr.
  • Add spinach (with moisture from package), tomato paste and spice. Add broth. Let simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove skin from roaster chickens and discard. With your hands, tear off chunks of the meat from chicken and add to the stew. Bring to a simmer again.
  • Add paste, stir and simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
