  • 10 pieces of beef
  • 1 smoked fish
  • 10 or more medium pieces of pumpkin
  • 1 small bunch of spinach leaves
  • 1 small bunch of Yakwa leaves
  • ½ cup of raw groundnut, or groundnut paste
  • ¼ cup of dawadawa, locust beans
  • 4 fresh pepper, scotch bonnet / habanero
  • 4 fresh tomatoes
  • 1 bulb of onion
  • 1 cooking spoon of palm oil
  • 2 pieces of red bell peppers
  • 3 Maggi cubes
  • Salt to taste
  • Water
  1. 1
    Blend your scotch bonnet peppers, red bell peppers, tomatoes and onion. After which, bring to a boil till the water is dried up and you’re left with a thick paste.
  2. 2
    Roast your raw groundnut and peel off the skin then blend to get a smooth paste. Alternatively, you can use already roasted groundnut and just blend OR buy canned groundnut paste.
  3. 3
    Add your pieces of beef in a pot and season with salt and seasoning cube(s). Add water to the level of the beef then add the pieces of pumpkin to bring to a boil until soft.
  4. 4
    When the beef is cooked thoroughly, set aside and fry. This step is optional though. 
  5. 5
    After frying, add back into your pot containing the beef stock and pieces of pumpkin. Proceed to mash the pumpkin to get it incorporated into the beef stock. Alternatively, you can decide to mash some and leave some in tiny bits. Allow to cook on low heat till the stock starts to bubble to the top.
  6. 6
    Add your groundnut paste and allow to simmer for about 3 minutes or till the paste is dissolved into the soup.
  7. 7
    Add your dawadawa and smoked fish then stir to combine and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes. 
  8. 8
    Then, add your pepper blend (in step 1) and palm oil (this is optional). Stir well to combine and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. 
  9. 9
    Taste for seasoning and add salt and/or seasoning cube(s) if needed.
  10. 10
    Wash and chop your spinach then add to the pot. Stir well to combine and allow to simmer for two minutes.
  11. 11
    Add your already washed and shredded yakwa leaves, stir into the soup and allow to simmer for a few minutes. You want the leaves to remain green, so don’t cook for too long. Take off heat.
  12. 12
    Best served with Waina (Rice Masa) or Tuwo Shinkafa.
  • Depending on how thick or watery you prefer it, you can still add water in step 11 or before step 10.
  • The leafy vegetables acts basically as a garnish to the Miyan taushe soup and so shouldn’t overshadow the soup. It should be added sparingly.
  • You can also add other various herbs & spices of choice like Fresh ginger, garlic, curry cumin seeds, coriander seeds, oregano, rosemary and so on.
