Dehulled Egusi seeds can be used as a thickener for soups and stews. A blend of 240 mL of egusi seeds with 200 mL of water, added little honey and salt produced a mixture resembling the creaminess of mother’s mill that could be used as an infant food supplement. Ground into a paste with a small amount of water, Egusi seeds can be added to sauces and soups towards the end of cooking to create a curdled, scrambled egg-like texture that is neutral in flavour. The seeds can also be roasted as a snack, ground and formed into patties, ground into a peanut butter-like spread or fermented and added to soups or stews.
