Moi-Moi is a meal made from beans. It is a tasty delicacy that can be eaten with either Pap, Bread, or Garri or rice.
A lot of people shy away from making this meal because the process is time-consuming; from peeling and blending of the beans and waiting for the meal to be cooked.
However, when the meal is done, you will testify that the effort was worth it, as it is very delicious especially when garnished with fish and egg.
Thinking of a new meal to make this weekend, then learn how to prepare Moi-Moi using the directions below.
— 2 Cups dry beans Black-eyed Peas or Brown Beans

— Pour the beans in the blender and add twice as much water as the beans (by volume).
— Blend the beans for 3-4 seconds per time and repeat this for 3 to 4 times – Remember we are peeling the beans and not blending it.
— Pour the beans back into a large bowl and add enough water to fully cover the beans. Now, squeeze the beans with your fingers and the skin will float then quickly separate the skin from the beans by pouring through a sieve.
— Once that is done, pour the peeled Beans (the skinless Beans) inside a blender, together with the Red Pepper, Scotch Bonnet, and Onion – Blend to the smoothest consistency you can ever get.
— Combine the blended mixture with the remaining ingredients except for the boiled eggs.
— Spray oil on the container you will be using then pour in the mixture and cover it with a lid or seal with a foil paper.
— Line the base of the pot with either foil paper, sticks, leaves, or anything you deem fit. This is to prevent the Moi- Moi from burning.
— Arrange the Moi- Moi inside the pot and cook till done. This should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes depending on the quantity of the Moin Moin mixture in each container.
— Insert a toothpick into the middle of the Moi-Moi to check for its done. The toothpick should come out fairly clean and not moist.
— Remove from heat and serve.
