Traditional Nigerian Healthy Recipes: South-West

The people of the South West, predominantly the Yoruba, are arguably some of the most diverse eaters in Nigeria.

From their yam-based cuisine like Iyan and Amala to their bean-based delicacies like Akara and Moin Moin to their appreciation of the whole animal when preparing a dish (famously their love for Kpomo), with Yoruba food, you’re always bound to find a new dish that you’ve never tried before!

Variety is indeed the spice of life in the South-West but health and nutrition factors often guide many of Yoruba’s favourite soups too.

The Yoruba have some of the leafiest, vegetable-enriched soups in all of Nigeria with popular soups like Efo-Riro being a staple in many a Yoruba person’s diet.

Diverse, health-conscious, and bursting with flavour, there’s a little bit of everything in a South-Western dish!
