Egusi Soup Recipe


Nigerian Egusi Soup is a hearty and flavorful soup made with ground melon seeds, leafy vegetables, and a blend of spices. The seeds are first ground into a paste, which is then cooked in a mixture of oil and spices until the oil separates from the paste. Water or broth is added to create the soup base, and leafy greens are added for added nutrition and flavor. This soup is typically served with rice, fufu, or another starchy food, and is known for its rich, nutty flavor and creamy texture. It is a staple in Nigerian cuisine and is enjoyed for its satisfying taste and comforting warmth.



1 cup Melon (Egusi) seeds

1 onion, chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped

2 bell peppers, chopped

2 cups leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, etc.), chopped

2 cups Power Oil

23 cups water or chicken/beef broth

12 habanero peppers (or to taste)

12 tbsp ground crayfish (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Grind the egusi seeds into a paste using a food processor or mortar and pestle.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, and habanero peppers. Cook until the tomato has broken down.
  4. Stir in the egusi paste and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently, until the oil begins to separate from the paste.
  5. Pour in the water or broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and add the chopped leafy vegetables.
  6. Season with salt, pepper, and ground crayfish (if using). Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the soup has thickened and the leafy vegetables are tender.
  7. Serve with rice, fufu, or any starchy food of your choice.
