Spinach (aleho) soup is the Yoruba version of Efo riro and the Akwa-Ibom/Cross River version of Edikaikong, (though there's a little bit dfiference) and here's an easy way to prepare it at a very low cost of 500 naira. You read that right, 500 naira!

2. Aleho (spinach) - 50
3. Bouillon cubes - 50

Roughly blend your pepper and onions together, pound your crayfish and dice the remaining onions.
