Dr Abena Boakye’s research on cooking with egusi and her Wrewre Stew and Soup Cook Book

Dr Abena Boakye, FSNet-Africa research fellow, has been conducting research into incorporating Egusi (cucurbit or wrewre seeds) into diets for improved nutrition. As part of the research that she did, she worked with communities and scientists to improve commonly used Wrewre soup and stew recipes, to increase the protein and nutritional value of the food. She produced a Wrewre stew and soup cook book that contains easy-to-make recipes. Download the cook book here.
