Food Video : Making Plantain Pepper Soup


A little history, plantain pepper is mainly found in the capital of  Calabar, Nigeria .  I actually learned this recipe from my mother (shout out to her ) and she learned it from her elder sister that went to serve as a National Youth Service Corps (NYSE) at Cross River state in Nigeria . Most of my recipe have been passed on from generation to generation now to me The Millennial Food Enthusiast.
