Beans Stew Recipe


Bean stew, or Mbosho, is one of the most popular edible seeds in Kenya. To prepare bean stew, you need to boil the beans until they are soft, then fry them with onions and tomatoes. Bean stew is usually enjoyed with cooked rice. If you're after plant-based protein, bean stew is the way to go.
