Package Information

Ewedu leaves are most commonly used to make a popular Nigerian soup called "Ewedu soup." To prepare this soup, the leaves are boiled, blended, and then served with a flavorful stew made from ingredients like locust beans, ground crayfish, and palm oil. It is typically eaten with starchy side dishes like amala (yam flour), pounded yam, or eba (cassava flour).
Other Information
Ewedu leaves have a naturally mucilaginous or slimy texture when cooked. This is similar to the texture of okra. Some people enjoy this characteristic, while others may find it off-putting. If you want to reduce the sliminess, you can add ingredients like lemon juice or vinegar while cooking, which can help cut down on the mucilage.
