Friday Goodness: Tasty Veggie Moin Moin!

Good Morning Sweets!
I hope you are still prepping for the holidays? hmmmm nice!

Ok, I have made this recipe a number of times but never shared it here (I shared some of this on the food cube). For the sake of the festive season, you might want to add this to your party menu, just to jazz things up a bit....*wink

*Moin moin with a twist.


Ingredients: This will serve 6 to 7 people. 2 wraps per person. (Basically your regular Moin ingredients)

  • 2 cups of honey Beans
  • 2 medium Onions, roughly chopped
  • 200g Tatashe 
  • 2 tbsp ground Crayfish(optional)
  • 4 small native 'yellow' pepper.
  • 3 tbsp Canola oil (For a healthier meal, minimize the amount of oil you add)
  • 1 tsp of paprika (optional)
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 hand full scent leaves_chopped (this is the main ingredient that will make a difference today)
  • Salt and seasoning cubes to taste.
  • 1 medium smoked 'titus' fish_remove bones carefully.
  • 2 eggs (optional)

Cooking Method:
  1. Blend all the ingredients, except the spices, seasoning ,scent leaves and fish. Blend till very smooth and fluffy. Do not add too much water.
  2. Pour in a bowl and add the chopped scent leaves, spices and seasoning.
  3. Share into leaf wraps, (drop a small piece of fish and egg into each wrap) or plastic bowl, whichever you prefer. I prefer the leaves because it comes out tastier. 
  4. Cook for about 45 mins and turn of the heat. Allow to cool a bit before serving.
  5. This tastes a bit different from the regular thing. If you are not sure you would like it, then make a few regular(no leaves) wraps for yourself.

Do you see the veggies now?

I ate mine with some tomato sauce that I made the day before.

So that's it sweets, make sure you add this to your parry menu, your guests will love it! God bless.
