See An Awesome Way To Cook Beans In Nigeria

Beans is one of my absolute favorite things to eat,I could eat it for breakfast,lunch and supper.


  • Cleaned Black eyed or brown beans – 2 cups
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • Palm oil – 4 Tablespoons
  • Dried pepper powder- 1-2 tablespoon
  • Maggi – 2 cubes (bouillon cube)
  • Salt – to taste


  • Set a medium size pot on high heat, add in 5 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  • Add in the onion and beans.
  • Reduce the heat to medium, let the beans cook for 1.5 hours (add more water during cooking if needed)
  • When water is almost dried up; add in the pepper, maggi, salt and palm oil.
  • Simmer on low heat for another 30 minutes.
  • Serve with plantain, bread, garri or your choice of side

– If you are soaking the beans prior to cooking, you will only have to cook it for 1 hour
– Back home, we used blended pepper not dried pepper. Either one works
