You may have already come across the Nigerian Beans and corn Porridge(Adalu) recipe, here on the blog.
The combination of beans and corn is a delicious way to eat your beans and get your fiber without sacrificing taste and flavor.
Even though it is traditionally prepared with fresh corn, I’d say that I enjoy it better when prepared with the canned sweet corn .
And for extra richness and nourishment, I serve it with some stir-fried greens. This meal combo was courtesy of my wonderful friend and dietician(Dr.Daisy), who has been helping a lot of people live a healthier and happier life.
**Below is an an easy to follow video recipe on how to prepare Beans&corn Porridge**
Since we already have the Adalu(bean and corn porridge) recipe here, I’ll show you how I prepared this rich and delicious accompaniment☺.
the Stir-fried Green Vegetables you’ll need :
– 500 gr spinach/ugwu/ green amaranth(I used a mixture of 2 veggies)
– 1 small Onion bulb, chopped
– 1 vegetable oil
– 1 tablespoon ground Crayfish(optional)
– 1 Stock
– Salt to taste
– Dried or fresh hot pepper, to taste
To prepare the Stir-fried Green Vegetables
1. Wash and dry the vegetable of choice: press the vegetables between clean
kitchen towels to dry them thoroughly.
Tip: if the vegetable is wet, it will heat up and
the vegetables and set aside .
3. Now heat up the oil in a saucepan until very hot; add the chopped onions,
peppers and ground crayfish(if using). Stir-fry for about 10 seconds.
Tip: the crayfish gives it a delicious and distinct taste, but you can
omit it if you want to.
4. Pour in the sliced vegetables, crush in the stock cube and stir-fry for 1
minute until the vegetable just starts to soften or wilt.
5. Add salt to taste and continue stir-frying for another one minute. Then serve immediately and enjoy.

This looks yummy. I'm a fan of adalu. And this looks even better. Nice job you're doing here.
Thanks Maryam, I'm glad you like it 🙂
It looks nice and yummy. Pls I want to know why you always use white beans for most of ur beans recipe, because I prefer red beans than white.
Hi Adet, I love red beans too, but where I live in Europe, it's not easy to come by, so I just use the white one. Don't worry you will enjoy it all the same, and even more delicious with the red beans. Expecting your feedback hun 🙂

Lol.. o yes it is good for a diabetic person, just use less palm oil while preparing the Adalu.
