Thinking about Moin-moin makes me drool😊. I love eating this delicious food to stupor, because it is enjoying a perfect meal without the slightest feeling of remorse. Moin-moin is essentially steamed beans/black eye peas paste and it is a staple in most Nigerian homes. A lot people love to make it but dread the preparation process, because peeling its shell or peel is quite daunting. spiiCery is pleased to let our clients know that we now have peeled black eye peas which makes making this protein-rich food easy. This meal is wonderful for vegetarians, weight watchers and protein lovers alike.


2 cups peeled beans (Black eye peas)
½ cup canola oil
½ cup ground crayfish (optional)
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup water
¼ teaspoon spiiCery organic scotch bonnet
¼ teaspoon salt


Wash peeled beans and then soak for 30mins to an hour. 

Blend until the paste is very smooth, then add red onion and blend some more. 

Pour paste into a bowl and add ½ a cup of water, salt, spiiCery Organic Scotch Bonnet, and mix with a spatula for about 3mins. 

Now add the canola and stir for another minute and pour into 4 (1inch heat resistant containers) and place lid. 

In a 4-5inch deep pot add water and bring to a boil; in medium to low heat place the four tightly sealed containers in the pot. Cover the pot with foil and then place the lid, this will allow the beans/peeled black eye peas paste to steam properly.

 Allow to steam for 30-45mins on low heat and it is ready to be served. Garnish with tomatoes or eat with any sauce of your choice.
