But now bitter leaf soup has dislodged that once favorite dish. But it is all for a good reason or should i say REASONS!
Bitter Leaf became a favorite when I discovered the many medicinal benefits that it contained.
In fact the health benefits of bitter leaf is enough to make a new disciple out of you.
Once I became aware of the health benefits of bitter leaf, I then set out on how to reap its many benefits.

Despite the bitterness I would just drink it without remaining a drop.
Soon enough the roots became part of my recipe while the stalk became chewing sticks for me.
Then one day my girl friend introduced me to the bitter leaf soup itself and ever since then I have never looked backed.
Bitter Leaf soup is sweet, and its preparation is quite straight forward.
