Moi-moi is a food made with beans and beans belong to an important class of food which is protein, moi-moi is a food that builds the body, most often, some people replace Moi-Moi with meat because it has the same nutritional value.

Why did your country choose the food as a staple food?

I grew up and saw my people consuming Moi-Moi like never before despite the long process of preparation. With my little research, my country chooses or has Moi-Moi as a staple food because our land is fertile for beans production, especially in the northern part of Nigeria where I live currently.

Because of the availability of beans in my part of the world, the consumption also become very high because of how available it is, my father doesn't farm beans to be sold no! he stores them to make sure we have more than enough to eat in the next seasons.

I appreciate you all for reading through my post, I invite the following persons to read through my post and show their participation. @venturabogarin, @ishayachris, and @yonaikerurso

Hola amiga.
Gracias por tu invitación.

De verdad que Moi Moi es una proteína muy popular en tu país y el mío. Aquí en mi territorio (parcela) sembramos y lo recogen tierno y también seco. Son exquisitos guisados dulces y salados, también se preparan como palo a pique, eso frijoles revueltos con arroz y carnes(pollo, carnes rojas, cerdos) y queda exquisito.

También se cultivan por los vecinos y hacen trueques y ventas.

Gracias por compartir receta.
