Efo Riro Soup, a soup originating from the Yoruba language of Nigeria, translates to “stirred spinach.” This flavorful dish embodies the essence of Nigerian cuisine, showcasing the vibrant flavors of Africa.

Central to its creation are indigenous spinach varieties, particularly ‘Efo Shoko’ (Lagos spinach) and ‘Efo Tete’ (African spinach), widely cherished for their accessibility and taste. While these greens are a staple in Nigeria, spinach varieties from other regions can be substituted worldwide.

Let’s talk about Efo Riro Soup, a beloved soup cherished not only in Nigeria, but here in Texas as well.
