Cooking Steps for Farmhouse:
  1. the picked and washed beans is put in a pot of water and placed on a cooker
  2. When it boils, add pepper and palm oil, then, I covered and allowed to boil for 20 minutes before adding other ingredients.
  3. After twenty minutes of boiling, I added  the chopped plantain, washed smoked fish, salt and seasoning to taste, stirred, covered and allowed to cook until the plantain and beans are soft and thickened. I did frequent stirring of the contents to ensure that it doesn't remain watery.
  4. When it got soft and thickened to the consistency I want, I turned off the cooker and served.
Yam and Irish potatoes can be cooked this way too.
