Ewedu: Recipe for frozen chopped ewedu
2 cups frozen ewedu ( it's sold as jute leaf in most Canadian grocery stores)
11/2 cup water
1 bullion cube
salt to taste
Iru aka ogiri (locust beans) (optional)
Add the water to a pot and set on medium heat. cover until the water starts to boil
Add in the ewedu, do not cover
Stir continuously as ewedu has the tendency to boil over
Add in the salt, iru and bullion cube.
Cook for 5 mins.
Serve with stew and your choice of okele.
Craved this for like the longest time, so I decided to make some.the funny part is I never liked Ewedu or Amala when I was at home .
