Edo black soup is, as the name implies, a soup common among the Edo people of Nigeria. It can be eaten with any swallow of your choice such as starch, eba, fufu, wheat, or semovita.




  1. Wash the bitter leaf very well (as if you are washing clothes) until all the bitterness is gone. Blend it to a paste.
  2. Blend the onions and peppers to a paste.
  3. Combine the goat meat, snails, onion-pepper paste, and seasoning cube in a pot. Add enough water to just cover the meat. Bring to a boil, and simmer until the meat is soft. After a while add your washed dry fish.
  4. Transfer the bitterleaf paste to a pot, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the cooked meat, fish, stock, ground crayfish, fermented locust beans, dried prawns, and salt to taste. Simmer for 5–7 minutes.
  5. Serve.
