PEPPER SOUP (LIGHT SOUP)


Pepper Soup

I hope you had a great weekend with friends and family. I had a fun filled weekend.

This week’s Pepper soup recipe which name’s derived from all the hot pepper used in it, is a favorite to a lot of households in Ghana and other West African countries.It can be eaten by itself, with fufu, pounded yam, bread, rice, yams, etc.

Growing up, we’ll always eat fufu with Pepper Soup or Peanut Butter soup on the weekends.

Some might not be able to handle the heat in this one, but you can handle one habanero pepper with a few more fresh tomatoes. Because without the hot pepper you have no pepper soup :).

I  used goat meat  because a friend got a great deal on a box, and was gracious enough to give me half a box. Goat meat is hard to come by and quite expensive.

I linked up inheritance recipes  .

    My husband would really enjoy this soup. He likes spicy dishes and goat meat. Your recipe would also make great entry for our #InheritanceRecipes link-up.

    When we were growing up, my grandfather made a similar dish called pepper pot. It was popular among my aunts and uncles, but us kids couldn’t handle the heat. 🙂 I do love me some goat, especially curried.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      You can try it with little or no pepper :). Thanks for stopping!

    When I was in St. Lucia….many, many years ago….one of my favourite foods I tried was Pepper Pot Soup. This sound like it would be very similar. Sure brings back some great memories.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      I believe it came from the same root since our ancestors were taken away years ago. I see similarities between African foods and foods from the Caribbean and Southern US. Thanks for stopping Gloria!

    Never heard of this soup, thank you for introducing us to new things. I like goat meat but have never seen it in supermarkets. If you don’t have goats meat what would your alternative be?

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Gillian, you can use chicken and beef. Thanks for stopping!

  9. Jennifer

    I have never heard of pepper soup before. This looks very interesting and something my family might eat if I make it.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Thanks for stopping Jennifer.

  10. Amy

    Ha! I love spicy foods but I’m not sure I could handle ALL the peppers! It sounds delicious though!

    1. Fred Nonterah

      You can cut the peppers down to suit your taste. Thanks Amy!

  11. Lynn | The Road to Honey

    Such a delicious looking soup Fred. I like my food spicy. . .so bring on the peppers!!;-)

    1. Fred Nonterah

      I love to hear that Lynn, how many habaneros can you handle ;)? Thanks for stopping by Lynn!

  12. Ali

    Besides a scotch bonnet habeneros are my favorite spicy pepper. I love the addition of ginger for a touch of exotic flavor.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Thanks Ali!

    I had so forgotten about fufu. Next stop kitchen to make your soup thanks for liking to Inheritance recipes

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Solange, please take pictures of your fufu and pepper soup :). Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Sarah James @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed

    Wow Fred, I bet your soup is hot with all those habaneros. It certainly looks delicious although I might have to take the heat down a touch for me. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Yes it is Sarah. You can use just one or two to lower the heat ;). Thanks for stopping!

  15. Lynne

    Another enticing recipe from your roots I’d love to try. It looks to me like you used stew meat, so I think I’ll try it with some local beef I have on hand. I’ve only read about fufu but I bet that would help to temper the heat and to make this meal feed a lot of folks.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Fufu does temper the heat… Also, you can use fewer habaneros so its not as hot. Thanks Lynne!

  16. Derek

    Whoo! 5-6 habanero peppers?! This is my kind of recipe! I love to feel the burn! haha

    1. Fred Nonterah

      That’s what I’m talking about Derek!

  17. Manju | Cooking Curries

    This sounds very similar to a goat curry that we make. The peppers would have given a nice spice to it. The husband would love this!

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Yes Manju, its a little similar to goat curry. I’m sure he’ll love it, let me know how it goes. Thanks!

  18. April

    Wow I know this was super spicy lol! It sounds delicious but I would need like HUGE glass of cold water to wash it down. I wouldn’t mind because I love a lot of heat!

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Lol… I love that you love a lot of heat, I don’t feel like I’m in world by myself :). Thanks April!
