Gbegiri (bean stew)

Hi guys, how are you all doing? Today I’m making an accompanying dish to my last post. See it here……

Gbegiri brings back loads of memories for me. I remember back in the days of secondary school, my friends and I will save some of our pocket money to buy tuwo with Gbegiri. It was worth every bite I tell you. :). When it’s time for dinner, I would decline as I was full from the meal and my mum would always wonder why. Sshhhh. It’s a secret 😉. ok, let me stop before I go on and on.

Let begin shall we :)👏

2 cups of beans
1 tablespoon of Palm oil
2 know cubes
Small onions


Prep time: 3 hours (soaking)
Peeling time: 15 minutes😉
Cooking time: 1 hour:15minutes
Total time: 4 hours: 30 minutes.

To save time and prep time, ite advisable to soak the beans overnight.  This will speed the peeling process and cooking time.

Peel the beans,  remove all peeled skin and drain until it has been cleaned completely. 

Put the beans into a pot, add onions and add hot water, make sure it’s enough to cook the beans, cover and let it boil until it becomes soft. (45 minutes-1 hour) depending on how long you soaked it for. *hot water makes the cooking time faster and also saves you energy bills 😉)

Once its soft, pour the contents into the blender and blend until smooth. (If you don’t have a blender to hand, use a Masher and mash the beans until its smooth. You will still get the same result.

Next add the palm oil, and knorr cube. Stir very well and let it simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes.

That’s it, you are done

Well done. Serve it with nice buka stew recipe is here and also Amala and Ewedu. (See picture below)

That’s it from Me
