¤ Beans and Fried Stew (Ewa Agoyin) ¤

I mean seriously, I love this dish like kilode. Beans was my best food as a child. Guess that’s why I’m very tall. Lol.  Anyway, almost anything made with beans is my favourite.

-2 cups Nigerian Honey beans
-Pepper blend
-1 large onion
-1/2 cup Palm oil
-1 seasoning cube

MARY’s Method
* Soak beans for 1 hour and discard soaking water (not compulsory if you’re running out on time). Cook until soft with a quarter of the onion. (I like to cook with onion though not compulsory). Your pressure pot should come in handy here- It drastically reduces cooking time. (Add water just enough to cover the beans in the pressure pot. That should be adequate for to have your beans very soft. Takes about 20 minutes)

* Dice or slice onion. Place frying pan on low heat and melt palm oil till it begins to smoke. Fry the onion in the palm oil till it’s golden brown. Pour in the pepper blend. Add seasoning cube and salt to taste. Fry till very dry.

* Serve beans hot with pepper sauce and fried plantain.
