in food •  8 months ago

Afang Soup is one dish that you will find commonly in many homes in Cross river and Akwa Ibom States of Nigeria. Afang or
Okazi also known botanically as Cnetum is widely available in Central Africa. The Nigerian equatorial forest holds such abundance of vegetation that is used both for food and medicinal purpose. It is a forest vegetable but can also be grown domestically. As with most vegetables, it is rich in vitamins and minerals. Some variants contain high levels of laxatives. If you are constipated this might be the type of soup for you.
Local music artists feel obliged to mention Afang if the lyricsof their songs has to do with food just to lend credence to its popularity. The presence of this soup on the menu always guarantees that most people will be present at lunch time . For reasons of popular demand by my family I find that I always have this soup in my freezer. Afang is on my menu so often that it is unbelievable.
