Ghanaian Food Or Nigerian Food? What Is The Best!

I'm Nigerian, but I love the Ghanaian peanut soup, I found this website http://www.ghanaianrecipes.com and made the recipe.

does anyone know how to make the nigerian style?


# salt and pepper, to taste

# 2 large onions, finely chopped

# 4 large very ripe tomatoes or

# 13 ounces canned tomatoes

# 6 1/2 ounces creamy peanut butter

# 3 1/2 pints boiling water

# red chilies, to taste

# 4-8 mushrooms

# Meat - Any meat of your choice, pork, beef, fish or chicken.


1. Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water, peel off the skin and blend the flesh to a smooth juice. If using canned tomatoes, blend. Cut the meat into small pieces, wash and season with salt, garlic and chopped shallots. Add a little water, put it on the fire and allow to boil for about 10 minutes.

2. Put the peanut butter into a big bowl, add 3/4 pt. of the boiling water and use a wooden spoon or a blender to blend the peanut butter and water carefully together to form a creamy, smooth sauce.

3. Mix together the tomatoes, peanut butter mixture, red chilies and mushrooms.

4. Continue to simmer, stirring only occasionally to prevent the food sticking to the bottom of the pan. This is now the basic soup.

5. Pour the rest of the boiling water into the soup and simmer slowly on medium heat for 20 mins or so.

This Ghanaian recipe soup is usually served with FUFU, an Akan dumpling made from yams, plantinas, cassava or even processed potato flakes. The FuFu should sit like an island in a sea of soup.This is a dish that is traditionally eaten with your fingers - even the soup!!

~What recipe or Method is used to cook Naija Peanut Butter Soup?

~The Ghanian recipe is the same as Sierra Leone's "Groundnut Soup" w/ the exception of the mushroom which is optional i suppose!

~Our Groundnut soup is eaten w/ Rice tho. . there are variations of how the rice is cooked!

~Plain Rice

~Okra Rice: A couple of Okra is added to the rice before boiling

~"Check" Rice:I think they use some sort of leaves/spinach that makes it green

~Cud be some flks eat groundnut soup w/ fufu in S/L but it's not common!
