Minced meat ogbono soup is a sister to meatball ogbono soup, the only difference being that the kids will enjoy every mouthful of fufu with meat-filled soup.
This is Nigerian Ogbono soup made in another kid-friendly way but you know what…adults can enjoy it too. You can also make this soup your own by adding other ingredients that your child loves, for example chopped okro, ground fish, as well as pepper if they love the heat.
