Ogbono soup is incredibly versatile. Babies and toddlers are introduced to solids with Ogbono, the sliminess helps them swallow with ease. ย Loads of people eat Ogbono soup with rice and I remember posting a photo of Ogbono on Instagram and was advised to try it with pasta. I did and it was really yummy. You can choose to make your Ogbono soup plain; without adding vegetables. This is also a tasty method. If you do choose to use vegetables, Pumpkin leaves(Ugu), Spinach and Bitter leaf are the most common vegetables used.ย
