My daughter hates beans so I try to spice it up each time l cook it, by far this is the best I have come up with… and she loves it so l decided to share it. I call it beans combo because it is a combination of foods.
- 3 cups of Beans( white kidney beans)
- 1 cup of fresh corn
- 1kg mackerel
- 1 cup of pre-soaked cassava flakes(Abacha)
- 2 wraps of oil bean seeds(ugba)
- 3 TBsp of ground crayfish
- 5 TBsp red oil
- 1 TBsp pepper
- 1 medium sized onion
- Salt to taste
- Scent leaves(nchawu)
Wash the fish and season. Let it marinate in the seasoning for 10 mins and fry.
Pick and wash the beans . Bring to boil for about 10 minutes. Strain and throw out the water( I do that because of the pesticides they use in preserving beans) continue cooking for 25mins.
Add sliced onions, crayfish ,pepper and corn, allow to boil for 20mins.
Add the pre-soaked cassava flakes and oil bean seed. Add the red oil and salt to taste… sprinkle with the scent leaves.
