Top Dessert – A Nigerian Goat Meat Pepper Soup

One of Nigerian top dessert that is very popular is goat meat pepper soup.

There are several other Nigeria top dessert recipes but goat meat pepper soup surpasses them in terms of popularity.

This top dessert can be made at home as well served in a restaurant.

Goat meat pepper soup is simply goat meat in a spiced broth, eaten alone or with boiled white rice or yam, agidi (Igbo) or eko (Yoruba) balls made from corn flour (my favourite), potatoes or plantain.

This top dessert soup does not take time and is very simple to prepare.

Goat meat pepper soup is not only one of Nigeria’s top dessert but also an ultimate comfort food.

While growing up, my mother usually gives my siblings and me this peppery soup when we were down with cold or flu and it works.

A healthy soup that gives warmth and is delicious to taste. Nigeria is truly blessed with food, soups and stews are a significant component of our cuisine and we have lots of them.

Apart from this top dessert, we also have healthy comfort soups like Ogbono soup, Okro soup, Efo riro, and many others.
