GT Food Talk: Groundnut Soup (Ofe Isawhe)

 Happy Weekend Foodaholics! So I was craving Groundnut soup this week after Facebook popped up a photo memory from a Groundnut soup recipe i prepared a few years ago. I got high moral from the YES’s i got on FB when I asked if we should make it this week.
Groundnut also known as Peanut is quite affordable in Nigeria, it is also packed with lots of health benefits which includes Folate an essential mineral that promotes fertility. Groundnut fights depression, so whenever you experience those mood swings, you can pop some groundnut to help ginger your swagger.
Anyway, for all the Yes’s, here is the recipe. Thank me, preapare your own and send me pictures.
