Unlike their spicy Asian cousins beans in Zambia are not cooked in spices. They are very mildly spiced and the onions, tomatoes and bean cooked together in a pot. I made these beans as part of a Zambian meal. We ate them with n'shima or corn porridge. It was a very different mild flavored meal.
If you are fond of spicy food then this version of beans is not for you.
Recipe adapted from here
You will need
1 cup beans (I used red kidney beans)
1 onion, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 tbsp. green pepper, minced
salt to taste
1 tbsp. oil
Soak the beans overnight. Next day discard the water. Add 1 cup of fresh water and pressure cook the beans until tender. In my pressure cooker that is 10 minutes with the pressure on or 3 whistles in pressure cookers that whistle.
Place the beans in a pan and heat through. Add the onion, tomato and salt. Let it cook for about 5-10 minutes. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Cook another few minutes. Turn off heat.
