The Nigerian Pepper Soup is a unique delicacy with a blend of spices such as Ehuru (African Calabash Nutmeg), a variety of Peppers, Selim, etc, and a distinct rich scent and flavor. 

A hot plate of pepper soup is a perfect meal on cold rainy days, as it warms up your body and the aroma just wakes you up.   

Pepper soup is known to have medicinal properties as a result of the herbs and spices used to prepare it. For instance, pepper which has expectorant properties helps provide heat to the body and relieves nasal congestion thus treating sore throat, catarrh, cold, and cough. 

African Calabash Nutmeg (Ehuru or Ehiri), a major ingredient in pepper soup, has been proven to have ani-sickling properties and can be used to relieve constipation, headache, and fever pain.

Pepper soup is a great postnatal meal choice for the recovery of the woman’s body.
