I didn’t plan to post the recipe of this meal because it seems strange but it is delicious, I promise. The idea of this food came when I had extra hibiscus tea and decided to make good use of it. And like most of my recipes, it is very easy to make, specially created for the busy and lazy. 😎

I shared a picture of my already made ogbono soup with okro on my WhatsApp stories and my friends starting hounding me for the recipe.
