Africa: Liberia: Liberian Fiery Bean Soup





Boil the beans until they’re tender and easily mashed. Mash 1/2 of the beans – this is an important step and gives the dish its unique, thick consistency. Set the mashed and the whole beans aside.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the chiles, 1/4 of the onion, and the tomatoes. Pulse until smooth.

In a stockpot, fry the rest of the onion over medium heat in the palm and peanut oils until translucent.

Add the green pepper and saute for another few minutes. Add the tomato/pepper/onion mixture and stir until it begins to bubble.

 To this, add the tomato paste, a few pinches of fresh ground black pepper, the bouillon cubes, and salt, to taste. The dish is going to be pretty hot at this point – don’t panic! You’ll be adding some liquid soon.

Add the beans – both mashed and whole – and the seitan, if you’re using it.

Add just enough water to cover the beans and lower the heat and simmer, stirring often, for about 20 minutes.
