Efo riro (Nigerian Spinach Stew) is a mouthwatering, savory, African stew made with ‘Efo Shoko’ (Lagos spinach) or ‘Efo Tete’ (African spinach). Who knew spinach could taste so good?
8 cups spinach chopped
200 g goat meat or any meat of choice
2 cups mushrooms
½ cup palm oil
2 plum tomatoes also known as roma tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
1 habanero pepper
¼ cup water or stock optional
2 tsp bouillon powder
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp ground crayfish
1 tsp pepper flakes optional
1 tsp salt or to taste
Blend tomatoes, red bell pepper, habanero pepper and half of the onion together using a food processor.
Chop up the other half of the onion and set aside.
If using fresh spinach, chop it up, wash and squeeze, and leave in a colander. If using frozen spinach, microwave for a few minutes.
Wash and drain the mushrooms.
Heat ½ cup of palm oil in a pot on medium heat, add in your onions and stir for about 2 minutes.
Add in your blended tomato and pepper mix and stir for about a minute.
Add the bouillon powder, crayfish, black pepper, cayenne pepper and salt, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.
If using fresh spinach, add ¼ cup stock or water and bring to a boil.
Add the goat meat, mushroom, and any other meat you desire and let boil for another 5 minutes.
Add the spinach and stir intermittently for about 5 minutes.
Add more salt or spices if desired.
Garnish with red pepper flakes, if you want it spicier and enjoy!
