1 small onions (chopped)
4 tomatoes (cut or blend)

1 cube of knorr
Cameroon pepper (as desired)
Salt to taste
2 cups of chopped okro

Turn on stove. In a pot, put in the stock from the precooked chicken/fish/meat (just enough to make your soup). Add in pepper soup spices, onions, tomatoes, crayfish, knorr cube. salt to taste, then cameroon pepper. Bring to boil.
While Boiling put in your chopped okro. (Do not cover pot). stir your soup and allow okro to soften for about 2 minutes on medium heat (do not overcook).

Add in your chicken/fish/ meat. Stir.  Then turn off stove.

    I've been struggling with this concept of oiless okro, as in, how can there not be oil in okro of all Nigerian soups. However, wt ds recipe, I think i'm willing to gve it a trial. What if I were to blend/marsh the tomatoes?

      You do not have to swallow with the soup. You can take the soup alone.
