How To Make Ivorian Pepper Soup
The Ivorian pepper soup tastes the same in all West Africa but we all have a different way of cooking it. For this recipe the whole tomato, onion, and eggplant are cooked with the goat (or meat of your choice) and the spices; once the goat meat is tender the tomatoes, onion, and eggplants are pureed and added back to the stock and the goat meat.
Obviously, the authentic pepper soup is very spicy, but you can adjust the pepper to you family’s taste. Typically, the pepper is treated like the whole, tomato, onion and eggplant but you can just leave them whole.
It can be prepared with various other proteins, such as fish, shrimp, tripe, oxtail, chicken, goat, beef and/or cow. The Ivoirian pepper soup can be cooked using several meats in the same pot with this recipe.
