Hi everyone, hope you are all good? So today I will be making stewed beans. This isn’t the regular Nigerian beans that you may be used to, this is made with proper sauce that the beans will be cooked in finally:
I love this stewed beans because of the flavour that it packs. It’s that good. It can be eaten in on its own, or with some homemade soft dinner rolls. I have a Peppersoup Dinner Rolls recipe, be sure to check that out. When you pair both together you have an explosion of flavour, texture aroma that is sure to keep you asking for more.
I made this with my own combination and it’s a winner for me, try it and let me know what you think, I am sure your guests will ask for more. I have below some benefits of beans, makes sure you incorporate that into your lifestyle, it’s great source of Carbodydrates and protein.
Ok let’s get started shall we.
- 2 large Tatashe
- 2 atarodo
- 1 very large
- 2 medium sized tomatoes
- 2 Onions (1 large and 1 small onions)
- 2 Knorr cubes or maggi
- 1 cup of Beef stock
- 1 cup of Chicken stock
- 1 small medium can of Tomato purée (very optional)
- Bite sized Gizzard or kidney ( I used gizzard)
- Large pot
- Wooden spoon
Prep time: 3 hours-overnight
Cooking time: 2 hours
Total time: based On prep time.
Pick the beans and rinse until water is clean. Soak in warm water for 3 hours or overnight. (Soaking helps reduce cooking time and also helps in eliminating the residue from pesticides (if any) in the beans (that’s why you see a foamy water when you cook without soaking) this is what causes gas in most people)
After soaking, rinse again and add the beans to the pot.
Pour about 2 litres of water, Add the sliced onions, dry pepper and cover the pot. Cook uniterupted for 1 hour.
After 1 hour if the beans cooking
In another pot, add the oil and let it heat up.
Next add the 2nd onions. Fry on low heat for 5 minutes
Add half a cube of the stock cube
Next, add boiled pepper,
Once all has been added, mix together thoroughly.
Add the stocks (chicken and beef)
After 50 minutes, it should look like this.
It’s ready to serve. I really enjoyed making this stewed beans and what’s more you dont have to feel guilty about oil and whatnot. Although let’s remember that everything should be done in moderation 😉
That’s it from me today
I’ll see you all in my next post
