With this recipe, the flavours are not competing with each other, and your taste buds can just relax and enjoy the taste of the beans and sweetcorn, without being overwhelmed by all those extras like crayfish, stockfish, fresh fish etc.
You will need
- 3 cups of beans
- 1 cup of Sweetcorn(if you don not have raw maize)
- 2 red bell peppers – tatashe
- 1 red onion
- 2 – 3 pieces of ata rodo – scotch bonnet/habanero pepper
- Palm oil
- Seasoning cubes
How To Prepare
1. Boil the beans with enough water. Chop 1/2 of the onion and add to the pot. Let this boil until the beans are soft. Watch the beans carefully, you don’t want to over cook it and make it get too soft. If there is still plenty water, simply remove it.
2. Blend the bell peppers, ata rodo and the rest of the onions with a little water and set aside.
3. When the beans are soft, and there is just a little water left in the pot add the pepper from Step 2, sweetcorn, salt and seasoning cube. Stir and let this cook for another 10 minutes.
4. After 10 minutes, stir the beans and taste for salt and seasoning. Re-season if necessary. Add a good amount of palm oil. Stir and let this cook for another 5 minutes and you are done.
