If you are a groundnut soup lover but have a nut allergy or perhaps someone in your family has a nut allergy hence you can’t enjoy your favourite groundnut soup, then today, you’d be so happy you came across this post.
Did you know that Ghanaians have a nut free soup which just tastes so much like groundnut soup but without the nuts? It is a soup made from a type of melon seeds called wrewre. Apparently the only edible part of this type of melon is it seeds. Wonderfully, these seeds when toasted are so nutty and the milk extracted from makes light silky, nutty, nutritious and delicious soup. I dare say that it is much more delicious than groundnut soup but I leave the judgement to you. You’ve got to try it to believe it.
Wrewre can be found in most Ghanaian grocery stores in the diaspora. Do try this lovely soup and feedback to me.
