Hello everyone, Welcome to another exciting and educative episode on how to prepare Nigerian dishes.On todays episode,we will like to teach you how to prepare WATERLEAF soup.
But before then,a little introduction about the soup.
   The WATERLEAF soup is a Nigerian soup common among the IGBOs.It is mostly eaten with morsel and it can sometimes be eaten with white rice.

Method of preparation
*Pick out the leaves
*Put in a large bowl,pour in a generous amount of water and rinse very well and drain out water.Do not scrub the leaves
*Put pot over medium heat,put part of the leaves in the pot,sprinkle salt and add little bicarbonate of soda.Repeat process till all the leaves are in the pot.
