Easy Efo Riro Recipe For This Weekend

Efo Rico is one delicious Nigerian meal that originated
from Yorubaland and has now been accepted by other tribes. Very nutritious and tasty.

No tomatoes. Peppers, tatashe and plenty onions. (My mum believes the best taste comes when it's grinded on stone, but hey, this is the 21st century)

So I grinded mine with the hand grinder, manual blender, all join

Rinse, drain and steam (blanche) the vegetables

By the way, I'm going to do a post on the best way to parboil green without losing vitamins

See the small ingredients. I love pomo (cow skin) abeg, my soup is incomplete without it.
