On the 11th day of Christmas my true love gave to me a lovely plate of Edikang Ikong Soup. This is a dish that is originally from the Efik Tribe in Nigeria. People from Akwa Ibom and Cross River state enjoy serving this at home, weddings or any event they have. Your Edikang Ikong is usually very interesting when you add a lot of variety proteins to it. Some people just settle for the regular beef, stock fish, shaki (tripe) while some others go all out and have snails, periwinkles etc. This soup has been embraced by the other cultures in Nigeria and I am hoping to people all over the world, You would love it as well. The recipe I used was from my Mum’s blog and it tasted amazing. For those that may not be able to get pumpkin leaves outside of Nigeria, Spinach would be a good substitute. The recipe is available here. Seasons Feedings…Enjoy!!!
