Yay for real food!!

My back is doing pretty well today, so I went out and made some food purchases. sweet... I love baked tofu. There's a regular grocery store less than a mile from where I'm living right now, and there's a health food store less than a mile the other direction. Tomorrow night I'm going to make a nice easy dinner using some tomato basil tofu... yay for real food.

dood.. bean cake is way better than the bean kurd (i.e. ''tofu'') ... fyi.


Just because they call it 'real food' in communist china - does not mean that the West need adopt the same standard. We're better than that..

Ingredients

• 500g/llb beans (the goya black-eye beans type)

• 3 fresh chillies (liquidised)chillies = 'red bell pepper' (gives color)

• 1 large onion (liquidised)

• 200ml/7fl. oz oil

• 225g/8ozfresh prawns... prawn = ground up brine shrimps for spice.. **optional

• 2 soft boiled egg (slice them up and put a slice in the middle of each one before you bake)


- warm water to mix.
- leaves for Wrapping
- salt to taste



VARIATIONS:


MOIN-MOIN ELEMI-MEJE (Rich moin-moin with seven lives)


The so called seven lives of this dish is derived from the seven different garnishes incorporated into the basic mixture during preparation i:e.cooked sliced Kidneys, chicken, tongue, prawns,corned beef, flaked smoked fish and boiled eggs

Soak the beans for 5 minutes, wash thoroughly to remove skin. Grind or liquidize until smooth. If you haven't got a steamer, arrange a false base with leaves or tin foil and bring to boil. Mix the ground beans with other ingredients, add the warm water a little at a time until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Place mixture on clean leaves and wrap into parcels, arrange parcels carefully in the pot of boiling water, cover with a tight fitting lid avoid steam escaping, and steam for 1 hour or until moyin-moyin is cooked. Refill pot with boiling water if dry during cooking process. The parcels of beans should be firm to the touch after exposure to the air for a few minutes. Unwrap the leaves and serve with cold eko. The mixture can also be steam dariole moulds or foil container.
