Prep Time: 20 mins.
Cook Time: 55 mins.
Total Time: 1 hr 15 mins.
Servings: 7 People
- 300 grams Honey beans (oloyin)
- 75 ml of palm oil
- Two cubes of stock cubes (Knorr)
- ½ cup dried stockfish
- Two scotch bonnets
- 900 grams Yam
- Three ripe Plantain
- Two teaspoons of salt
- ½ cup dried shrimps
- One large onion
- Put the pot on the stove, add the water, and bring it to a boil. Dump 300g of honey beans (oloyin) into the boiling water after washing them properly under cold water.
- Cover the pot while you toss in half of the onions (chopped). Water will likely overflow the pot; if this occurs, keep the lid partially or totally ajar to allow the steam to flow out.
- Set the timer for 30 minutes and cook. The beans will require extra water, so keep an eye on them. You’ll need about two litres of water to prepare 300 grams of the beans, but you shouldn’t add a lot at once.
- Throw in some scotch bonnet peppers, plantains, dried shrimp, fish, and yams. Just pour in some more water, stir it in, and then put the lid on it. Keep it on the burner for another 15 minutes at moderate heat.
- Throw in the remaining half of the sliced onion, palm oil, two stock cubes, and 2 tsp of salt. Boil for 15 minutes on medium heat after adding 50-100 ml of water and stirring gently.
- Add more salt or pepper if it needs it. Halfway through, you can give it a gentle stir to make sure everything is combined.
- Your beans and yam porridge is ready to serve.
