My favorite dish when it comes to meal is beans. I love beans so much that there is no any other elaborate meal you would give me that I'll accept in place of it. Interestingly, beans has always been my favorite meal, and my love for it started right from when I was kid, and ever since then no any other food has been able to replace it.
In order to tell you how I love beans, I eat beans virtually on daily basis, and if I want to skip a day without eating beans would be only a day. I guess my love for beans began with its sweetness plus, the knowledge on how proteinous it is, and also being aware of its nutritional heath benefits. Another thing that made me to love beans is its versatility. Beans can be eaten with anything carbohydrate you can think of such bread, yam, potatoes, pap, oatmeal, plantain, etc. Funny enough, you can also make beans soup, which happens to my favourite.
Surprising, preparation of beans does not require much ingredients like other foods. It is the simplest food to cook, but you have to be patient for it to be properly cooked as it takes longer time for it to get done.
All you would need as ingredients to cook beans are; salt, water, dried pepper, palm oil, onions, greyfish or fish if you wish to garnish it with any of the sea foods. You may also add other spices like thyme, curry powder, vegetables like pumpkin leaf or green leaf, won't be bad in it, too.
