Ewedu soup (jute leaves) is indigenous to the people of Yoruba, a very popular Nigerian ethnic group. But that doesn’t mean other tribes have not learnt to enjoy Ewedu as well.

On today’s episode of HOW TO MAKE , I’ll share my recipe for making a delicious pot of ewedu soup .


  • 6 Packed cups picked ewedu leaves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon blended egusi
  • 1 tablespoon locust beans (iru)
  • Salt – to taste

  1. Combine the egusi with 2 tablespoons of water. Set aside
  2. Place a medium pot on high heat, add in the water and bring to a boil
  3. Add in the ewedu leaves. Reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered for 5 minutes of until leaves are softened
  4. Pour boiled ewedu into a blender and process until smooth ( this step is traditionally done with a local broom called “Ijabe’). The broom is used to pound the cooking ewedu until leaves are broken into tiny pieces – talk about workout!)
  5. Return blended ewedu to the pot and add in iru, salt, and egusi paste. As soon as the egusi starts to curdle, stir
  6. Stir in more warm water at this point to your desired level of thickness (I added about 1 cup extra)
  7. Serve ewedu with stew and gbegiri
