Egunsi Foods, a line of chilled ready-to-heat and eat West African foods from a company based in Harlem, has added three hearty pepper soups. Lemongrass-chicken, crayfish-chicken and vegan lemongrass-mushroom — thick with ingredients like chunks of succulent chicken and big sliced mushrooms — are richly haloed with spice. While satisfying on their own, they also take to creative enhancements: Turn the crayfish-chicken into bisque with some sherry, a touch of tomato paste and cream. Each jar provides a generous single serving but could be divided for two.
