Adding ademe to okro not only makes it extra slimy but also has a lot of health benefits to it. Jute leaves contain vitamin A, absorbic acid, thiamine and riboflavin. It is also rich in fibre and antioxidants which can be used for anti-flammatory treatment.

Ever wondered why you feel so full after consuming some okro soup? Okro/okra curbs hunger and keeps one full.

ABOUT GHANAIAN OKRO SOUP WITH ADEME

Do not be confused, there is a difference between Ghanaian okro soup with ademe and okro stew. Okro soup popularly called fetri detchi amongst the Ewe’s. I love everything okro…put it in soups, stews or even baked…lol. I simply can’t have enough. I usually pair it with banku/akple but eba sometimes makes a good substitute or better still with steaming boiled rice.

So it is with much honour that I introduce you to my very own recipe for okro soup. Growing up, my mother never made okro soup. We had okro soup or full okro pods in soups (for my benefit of course). After tasting okro soup form my bestie’s house (y’all should check out East Legon GuestLodge), I just had to have it all the time. This recipe can be tweaked anyhow you want it, and that’s what makes Ghanaian okro soup with ademe so special.
