Beans Porridge

by Naija Delicacy

Beans porridge is a popular Nigerian dish. Growing up I was not really a fan of beans porridge, I had to be threatened to eat it or else I wouldn’t grow tall, shocker I am not. Presently it’s my favourite dish to prepare and eat, its like a comfort food for me. Many people eat it with bread or soaked garri, recently I even found people who take it with pap. The key to getting delicious beans porridge is to cook the beans to soft perfection, nowadays, that’s easy because you can use your pressure pot. There are different methods and types of beans porridge but mine is the easier and fast choice.
