DIRECTIONS

  • Soak fresh peas (used canned peas if you cannot find fresh) in cold water for about five minutes to soften.
  • Using both hands, rub and gently squeeze the peas as they continue to soak.
  • This process will gradually loosen the skins, which will float to the top.
  • Skim and discard the skins.
  • Drain and rinse the peas, add salt and hot pepper and cover with clean water.
  • Boil until tender.
  • Serve, along with the cooking water over oshifima or another stiff porridge.
  • If you like, you can cook greens, such as spinach and perhaps serve some sliced bananas with peanuts to have a complete meal.
