Bean loaf



  • 1 ½ cups Black eyed beans washed and skinned.
  • 1 very small onion.
  • 4 big tatashe (red bell pepper) seeded.
  • 4 attaragu (Scotch bonnet peppers).
  • 1 tablespoon ground crayfish.
  • 1 cup meat stock.
  • ½ cup vegetable oil.
  • Knorr cubes and salt (as needed).
  • Water (as needed) just enough to give the consistency of smoothie.
  • 4 eggs, boiled and shelled.


  • Combine the beans, onion, tatashe and attaragu in the blender. Blend with very little water until very smooth.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix properly.
  • Pour the mixture into a rectangular loaf tin and place the eggs in a straight line as seen in the picture.
  • Put the tin in a pot, and add a little water at the base for steaming. Ensure that the water level is maintained through-out steaming.
  • Cover the pot and steam for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • When it’s ready leave to rest in the tin for 5 minutes then turn out unto a plate. If it does not come out easily, use a knife to loosen the edges and then turn out.
  • Leave the loaf to cool a bit and then turn the loaf back right side up.
  • Slice the loaf into thick slices and then you will see the beautiful egg rings in the middle.
