One day I decided to buy a new pressure cooker.
I had asked a friend who came came over to help cook a cup of Nigerian brown beans.
Somehow she cooked a cup, but the cup measure she used was about five times bigger than my regular measuring cup.
So I had extra cooked beans on my hands.
Got left over cooked beans and need a quick, no-fuss comfort food?
These NIGERIAN BEANBALL SUBMARINES couldn’t be any easier.
Cooked beans paste was mixed with seasoning and breadcrumbs, then rolled in even more bread crumbs before being fried until crispy and golden.
I added them to a soft bread roll, then topped with pepper sauce and plenty of savory sautéed onions and bell peppers.
1. 2 large deep scoops of very soft cooked beans. (Well mashed)
2. 1 cup bread crumbs
3. 1 onion, chopped
4. 1 bell pepper, chopped
5. 1 tablespoon oil
6. Salt, to taste
7. Seasoning, to taste
8. Sauce of your choice (I had pepper and onion sauce).
– Mix beans with 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs.
– Add more if the mixture needs to be thickened up to hold its shape.
– Thoroughly mix in your mixture of spices.
– Roll your spiced bean/breadcrumb mixture into balls.
– Roll the balls in breadcrumbs.
– In a non stick fry pan medium-low heat, cook the balls in oil. Start with 1 tablespoon of oil.
– Carefully rotate each ball to brown the outside.
– Sautee bell pepper and onion slices and set aside
– Put beanballs inside of your bread, top with pepper sauce, onion, and bell pepper.
Have a yummy Saturday.
I love you, I love your health.
