Food Tales – Ogbono Soup

Hi, my name is Enene Otabe and I work and reside in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. I’m very friendly and I love connecting with people and making new friends. I’m a Masters student at Nasarawa State University, Keffi. I hate embarrassment and love volunteering for a good course.

My favorite meal is Ogbono soup and I love eating it with pounded yam a lot of times. I am from Benue State and my hobbies include eating this sumptuous meal i.e Ogbono soup with pounded yam of course and then reading.

I love Ogbono soup so much that I made it my favorite cos I’m a fan of solid meals. I am one of the millions of women in Nigeria who isn’t shy or ashamed to declare my love for solid food. Apparently, I could have impersonated my favorite meal but on a second thought, I feel being real and being oneself is priceless and cannot be overemphasized.

Okay, this meal is like the advance version of okra. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about?
