I love this dish! My late husband was from Cameroon (fr.West Africa) He taught me to cook their dishes. When I prepare these recipes, I am thankful for having the opportunity for such a wonderful cultural experience. The more you make this dish, the better you get at it. Actually, the beans are a healthy food and very filling. You can add Meat and make this a one-dish meal. A loaf of french bread is great with it. *062910-thank you toubabou-ke member_id=1342512 for pointing out the palm oil. I do use palm oil but for confusion sake I didn't post it. Just kept it simple for other chefs:P* I have also used coconut oil.
