Goat Pepper soup (Local dish)

Goat soup is loved by many in Ghana.  I personally love mine with a lot of pepper. Hot and spicy is babe.

Lol. Basically, we love soups in Ghana because most of them go with every staple food across all the various tribe dishes.


  • 200 g Goat meat
  • 70 g freshly chopped ginger
  • Half cup chopped onions
  • 2 medium size red onions
  • 100 g Kpakpo pepper/scotch bonnet (more or less depending on your level of tolerance for hot soup)
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 3 fresh plum tomatoes
  • Salt to taste



  1. Wash goat meat thoroughly and place in a saucepan with the chop onions.
  2. Blend a mixture of ginger, onions and pepper. Pour mixture on meat.
  3. Place fresh plum tomatoes in a saucepan and add a cup of water. Stir the meat well with the water and the ginger, onion and pepper blend.
  4. Cover and boil for 15 minutes.
  5. Add tomato puree to soup.
  6. Remove plum tomatoes from soup, blend and add it back to the soup.
  7. Add 3 cups of water and allow to simmer completely for about 25-30 minutes.
  8. Add salt to taste and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
  9. Serve hot


NB: if you plan on take the soup only or with bread, before serving add some chop carrots and mushrooms or any other vegetables of your liking.

It can be served as a 1st course. It can also be taken with some boiled potatoes, yam, fufu (cassava and plantain powdered together), banku (made from corn and cassava dough) or some bread. It has been yours truly, LADY ELOLO.
