This is a completely new dish for me. Not something I have heard of before, despite having spent some years of my childhood in Africa. But that was East Africa. And Moin Moin is popular in West Africa.
I came across it at Aylesbury Market on their Foodie Friday day, which is where I have a culinary herb stall. I tried it and loved it! And the people who cooked it for me told me I should try making my own, starting with a packet mix.
Made from black eyed beans, peppers and spices, it really is great as a snack or, as I have done, made as a light lunch with salad. So flavoursome. And you just steam it in the microwave for 4 minutes once you have mixed it with water. And you could jazz it up to suit your own tastebuds too if you wanted.
So I have done! Here is the packet mix.
Here is the final dish!
I love it. See if you can find some and try it yourself.
