How To Make Oven Baked MoiMoi

The process of making Moi Moi could be daunting. It's one of those recipes involving extremely skilled cooking processes that can make Nigerian cooking a little challenging but not impossible. The saying goes, "Teach me how to cook and I can feed a few people. Teach me a cooking technique, and I'll feed hundreds". If after these directions you still mess up with cooking Moi Moi, then please blame me. But I have a feeling you'll become a master chef at this recipe. So let's try it. Shall we.


• 1 cup of dry beans

• 1 and a half Medium Onion.

• 3 TBSP Veg. Oil

• 1 cup Mama Sinmi's Red Sauce (If you don't have this use tomato sauce)

• 1 Red Bell pepper

• ½ tsp red pepper or paprika

• ½ tsp Pink Himalayan Salt; season to taste

Moimoi or Moin-Moin is a Nigerian dish made by steam cooking bean (or black-eyed peas) in a paste form. The beans are washed with onions and fresh pureed peppers. It is a protein-rich food that can be a go-to staple for vegans and vegetarians


• Soak beans in water overnight

• Peel and clean the beans until most of the skin comes off. This will take using a lot of water and rubbing the beans together in the palms of your hands. The skin floats to the surface. Repeat this process until most of the skin is off.

• Preheat the Oven to 350°F *

• Blend the beans with the red bell pepper and Onion until it becomes as fine as it could be. Add MAMA SINMI'S RED SAUCE or tomato sauce

• Pour the bean puree batter in Cupcake Pan.

• Place it inside the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes.

• Serve and enjoy!
