HOW TO COOK EDIKAIKONG – ONE OF THE MOST NUTRITIOUS SOUPS IN AFRICA

EDIKANG IKONG is a vegetable soup that originated from The Efik People of Cross River State, Nigeria .

It is arguably one of the most nutritious soups in Africa

  • 2 lbs Malabar Spinach aka Water leaf
  • 2 lbs Pumpkin leaves (you may use ugwu if you have that available)
  • 3 lbs Goat meat cut into large bite size cubes
  • ½ cup Cooked shelled Apple snails
  • 1 lbs Smoked Shrimp
  • ½ cup Palm oil
  • 2 Red onions
  • 2 Scotch bonnet peppers
  • 4 tbsp Ground smoked dried shrimp aka Crayfish
  • 3 tsp Chicken bouillon
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Slice both onions and scotch bonnet peppers, and set them aside.
  • On low- medium heat in a large stock pot, braise the goat meat with the one of the onions, scotch bonnet peppers, 1 tsp bullion and 1 tsp salt for 30 minutes or until the meat is tender.
  • Half way into braising the goat meat, add ½ a cup of water and stir the meat to prevent in from burning. Keep the pot covered at all times during the braising process.
  • While the meat is braising, wash the Malabar spinach in cool water to get rid of sand and dirt. Pick off the tough stems, but save the tender stems and leaves. Chop and set aside.
  • Wash the pumpkin leaves in cool water to get rid of sand and dirt. Pick off the tough stems, but save the tender stems and leaves. Chop and set aside.
  • Once the meat is tender and is done braising. Set aside.
  • In a deep pot heat up the palm oil on medium heat (be careful not to over heat the oil on high heat) and sauté the other sliced onion for 10 minutes until it is starting to get caramelized.
  • Add in the snails and smoked shrimp, and continue to sauté for another 5 minutes.
  • Add in the braised goat meat and reserve the braising liquid for another recipe. It is a very flavorful stock, and be used for another dish.
  • Add in 2 teaspoons of bullion, crayfish, then add in the chopped water leaves and the pumpkin leaves. Stir and allow to stew uncovered on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, taste the stew for seasoning and adjust the salt if necessary. Turn the heat off and allow the stew to sit for 5 minutes, then serve hot

ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK, DR TIFFANY HOLLOMAN – HISTORIAN, SOCIOLOGIST AND LECTURER

Dr. Holloman is a Research Fellow at Centre for Race, Education, and Decoloniality within the Carnegie School of Education. She is also Co-Director of the Same Skies Think Tank, a regional democracy organisation in West Yorkshire.

Tiffany is a historian and sociologists who researches the dynamics of gender, race, and power from early modern to contemporary societies. Incorporating methods of New Historicism, Black Feminist Theory and Critical Race Theory, she uses an interdisciplinary approach to better understand government and higher education structures in society. To her, underdevelopment is a human sacrilege leading to superficial hierarchies and exploitation.

Research Interests

Tiffany’s current research delves into the underdevelopment of higher education institutions through its exploitation of racial hierarchies in the US and the UK. Bringing an awareness of Historically Black Colleges and Universities abroad, she seeks to expand on why HBCUs continue to exist and why they are necessary and how they can be used as an example for decolonising curriculums. Furthermore, her work challenges the word, “prestige” in relation to governmental structures and higher education institutions in that historically there is something amiss between ideals and human development. This has enlarged her research and participation to include the politics of regional democracy and devolution.
