I love me some beans!!! I know I say I love everything in the world lol but beans.. Beans! Heh! Beans hold a special place in my soul regardless of the shape and form they come in.

Beans take up flavor so so well and when done right, they slap harder than a sister whose top you wore without their permission!! I have loved yellow beans for a hot minute now and they had to be part of this recipe. My chili cumin coconut milk yellow bean stew is perfect now for the final days of the rainy season and any other time of year as well!

Coconut Milk Chili Bean Stew

I have been doing a back to basics series on my Instagram Stories for a couple of months now. I have not done one in quite a long time though (sorry guys :((((, life got in the way. ). Some of the recipe request I got were too detailed to be done as a back to basics so I will instead post them as blog posts; and my coconut milk chili bean stew is one of them. One of my followers requested for a bean stew, thought there is one I posted in 2015, I decided to make one that is richer and in my opinion of fuller flavor. What would a Kenyan food blog be without a coconut milk bean stew be after all?! ūüėČ

With warming flavors of chili and garlic, this one soooo perfect for July-August when it is much cooler in Kenya. And I promise, it is so easy to make too <3

All-Kenyan Bean Stew

In my country, the foods served are pretty stream lined. Kenyans have a very clear idea about what they like to eat all the time, and what they prefer not to have. This can be a really good thing and a really bad thing. One of the many foods that are really popular in Kenyan cuisine are bean stew and chapati. Some people also love to have the bean stew with some rice and at times some ugali. Today, I decided to add my own twist to this Kenyan favorite which takes it up a notch.

I boiled my beans with whole cumin seeds, garlic cloves and ginger root. This gave the individual beans character and a fabulous depth of flavor. It was made even more special using thick tomato sauce, amazing taste of red onion  richness of bell papers, and texture of carrot.

Prepare to be taken to cloud 9!
