Incredibly delicious and incredibly filling, adalu is a sort of porridge made with beans and corn. It's a comforting meal, not too complicated and packs a protein punch.
- 1 cup beans (brown or black-eyed)
- 4 cups water
- 1 small red onion (chopped)
- 1/2 cup sweetcorn / freshly cooked corn (off the cob)
- 2-3 cups red pepper mix
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 2 tbsp palm oil (optional)
- Salt to taste
Cook the beans in salted water with the chopped onions (on medium-low heat) until soft. You may need to add some extra water as you go along. In the end you want the beans to be soft and the water almost completely evaporated.
Add the red pepper mix, corn, oil and stock cube to the beans. Simmer for a further 25-30 minutes on a low heat.
Tastes great hot or cold.
