Emergency soup? You may be wondering, what's all this about? Well let me gist you 😉. In Nigerian homes this is a kind of soup whipped up as a quick meal. Emergency soups don't have any particular or special ingredients. It is whipped up with basically anything you have available at home or any thing that a short visit to a nearby market can solve like green leafy vegetables if you don't already have some in your garden or in your fridge.
Another characteristic of an emergency soup is that unlike the regular soup made in Nigerian homes which is made in large quantities, emergency soups really last past a day or two. This is because the Aim is to buy time enough to go to the major market and buy food stuff in bulk to prepare the major soup."Nigerian Click To Tweet
Need I tell you that for some reason, emergency soups are almost always more delicious than the major soups because it really doesn't have a set recipe. For this same reason, you really can't recreate one and No emergency soup is the same. It could be similar but not the exact the same.
The most common emergency soup my mom made was a mix of Okro and Egusi. She sometimes made Egusi and Ogbono too.
