Efo riro as this vegetable soup is natively called in Yoruba literally translates to ‘vegetable stir ‘ (where ‘efo’ translates to ‘vegetable’ and ‘riro’ translates to ‘stir’) and is indicative of how this soup is traditionally made. While it is natively called a vegetable soup, the style of preparation has more in common with western preparation of stews.
