Rice & Beans

When I am tired of plain and I have made Jollof and Fried rice, the next thing I think of is Rice and Beans. Not sure why it doesn’t come to mind a lot but whenever its made the love of rice refreshes in my mind. hahaha.


Brown or red beans
1tsp onion powder
Pinch of salt

Add water to the beans and rinse to remove all the dirt.

Add water to cover the beans, add the onion powder and a pinch of salt. Let it boil on medium heat for 20 minutes.

On the other hand, parboil the rice and rinse the starch out.

Pour the rice inside the beans and stir. Ensure the water in the pot is enough to cook the rice till its soft. If not add more water but not too much.

Taste for salt and leave to cook till the water is dry.

Serve with fish or meat stew and plantain.
