Stir-fried Green Veggies with Beans and Corn Porridge(Adalu)

   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
become soggy.

2. Slice
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.

    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 🙂
