Ewedu soup is a mucilaginous green soup obtained from cooking ewedu leaves (jute mallow or Corchorus olitorius). The soup is a staple of the Yoruba people of South-Western Nigeria. Ewedu soup can be eaten with amala, fufu, semovita, or wheat.

  1. Pick the jute leaves from the stalk, and wash them with warm water to get rid of the dirt.
  2. Put the leaves in a blender, and blend with little water. Don't add too much liquid, or it will be watery.
  3. Pour the blended mixture in a pot. Mix in locust beans, bouillon cube, and salt.
  4. Cook for about 2 minutes. Do not overcook—the mixture will continue cooking with residual heat for another minute or two after removed from the heat.
  5. Eat with your preferred side dishes.
