Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

4 cups diced small onions
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 whole tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons minced ginger
1 teaspoon minced Scotch bonnet pepper
1 cup red palm oil
2 cups ground egusi seeds
1 teaspoon crayfish powder
3 Maggi cubes
1/4 teaspoon dried iru powder
2 quarts chicken stock
1 pound goat shoulder, cubed
Kosher salt
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups pumpkin leaf or spinach, strained dry

Steps:

  • In a large saucepan, over medium heat, sweat the onion, garlic, tomatoes, ginger, and Scotch bonnet pepper in the palm oil until vegetables are translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the egusi seeds and toast in oil for 10 minutes. Add crayfish powder, Maggi, iru, and chicken stock and simmer for 30 minutes
  • Meanwhile, in a separate pan, over high heat, season the goat meat with salt and sear in canola oil until browned on all sides, about 7 minutes. Add the goat meat to the egusi mixture and simmer together for about an hour, or until the meat is tender. Add the pumpkin leaves during the last 20 minutes of cooking. The sauce should be thick and most of the liquid should have simmered off.
  • Season to taste with salt. Swerve with fufu or pounded yam.

EGUSI SOUP



Egusi Soup image

This soup is native to West Africa (Nigeria) and many of my American as well as Nigerian friends have enjoyed it. It is a great soup for those who like to try something different every once in a while. Ground Egusi seeds give this soup a unique color and flavor. If you can't find Egusi seeds, you can substitute pumpkin seeds. Any combination of crab, shrimp and smoked fish can be used in place of the shrimp. Drained, smoked oysters and chicken can be used in place of the beef.

EGUSI SOUP (NIGERIAN CHICKEN STEW)



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!

Provided by Nif_H

Categories     Stew

Time 1h

Yield 6-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 12

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.

Top Asked Questions

How do you make beef stew with egusi?
Heat oil in a skillet and add beef until browned but not cooked. Transfer beef to a dutch over or pot. Cover beef with water, add beef base and stir. Add remaining ingredients except egusi, bring to a boil then reduce to simmer. Add egusi. Simmer for at least an hour, possibly more. Add water to thin or more egusi to thicken the stew.
How do you make egusi Curry?
Add in ground spices (garlic, ginger and onions) then stir for about 2 minutes. This brings out the flavor of the spices. Add in ground egusi (with no added water) and mix well. Keep mixing for about 5 minutes (some egusi will stick to the bottom of the pot - that's okay!)
What is the best way to cook egusi?
PER SERVING % DAILY VALUE Heat oil in a skillet and add beef until browned but not cooked. Transfer beef to a dutch over or pot. Cover beef with water, add beef base and stir. Add remaining ingredients except egusi, bring to a boil then reduce to simmer. Add egusi. Simmer for at least an hour, possibly more.
How do you add onions to an egusi?
This will infuse some onion flavor into the Egusi and the Oil in the Egusi will also be activated. Add a little Palm Oil in another Pan (I used part of the Oil I drained from the Egusi) and add the second Onion (diced) and let that cook for a couple of seconds then add the Sauce and also allow that to cook for 5 minutes.
