Ukazi soup is one of my Mum’s favorite soups. She often prepared it when we were growing up. Because she loved the it, we automatically followed suit.

I really thank God for my mum because, she made us not to be too selective in foods.

She prepared more of those foods she knew we don’t enjoy, and with time we started enjoying them,ukazi soup was one of them.

Those foods we don’t enjoy then were very healthy and nutritious,  so she never wanted us to miss out.

I’ve also extended that to my kids. They are under going the training of not be too selective in foods, they enjoyed the soup, lol!
