“Wow, this exceeded my expectations. I thought, how flavorful could a "tomato soup" really be? This was incredibly flavorful with a deeply satisfying and comforting spice profile. I had this with homemade olive sourdough, a great combo.”
“The groundnut soup is delicious, just the correct spiciness. I look forward to trying all the other soups!”
“I can not get enough of these delicious West African soups. I’d never had West African food before. Now I have it about once a week!"
Egunsi Foods is proud to bring West African flavors to your table with options for every diet that your taste buds will love.
Our soups and sauces are preservative-free and made with fresh, local ingredients. That means you’re getting all the flavor without any of the additives.
Our vegan products are made from 100% plant-based ingredients. This means a lower environmental impact, and more veggies in your diet. What’s not to love?
Our products are grain-free, meaning they’re gluten-free, too. The bases for our soups are made with real vegetables, no flours or fillers.
Our soups and sauces do not contain any dairy ingredients, and are therefore 100% dairy-free. The creaminess of our soups comes from the beans and the cooking techniques we use - all plant-based!
