How To Cook Pap With Mixed Veggies
Welcome to my kitchen, where I will be showing you how to cook a delicious and healthy meal of pap with mixed veggies. Pap is a staple dish in many African countries, and when combined with mixed vegetables, you have a meal that is bursting with flavour and nutrition.
Before we get started, let's take a look at the ingredients you'll need:
- 1 cup of pap
- 2 cups of water
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of cumin
- 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
- 1 cup of vegetable broth
Now that we have our ingredients ready, let's get cooking:
Step 1: Prepare the Pap
In a pot, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and stir. Slowly add 1 cup of pap while stirring continuously with a wooden spoon to prevent lumps from forming. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the pap is cooked through.
Step 2: Saute the Vegetables
In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add 1 onion and saute for 2-3 minutes until it becomes translucent. Add in the sliced bell peppers and saute for another 5 minutes until they are soft.
Step 3: Add the Spices
Add 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of cumin, and 1 teaspoon of dried thyme to the skillet. Stir and cook for another minute until fragrant.
Step 4: Mix in the Pap
Add 1 cup of vegetable broth to the skillet and stir. Then add the cooked pap to the skillet and mix until everything is well combined. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until everything is heated through.
Now that your pap with mixed veggies is ready, it's time to serve and enjoy. You can serve it with a side of grilled chicken or fish, or you can enjoy it on its own as a vegetarian meal. To make it more filling, you can add some chopped nuts or crumbled feta cheese on top.
Pap with mixed veggies is a delicious and healthy meal that is easy to prepare. With the right combination of spices and vegetables, you can create a meal that is packed with flavour and nutrition. So why not give it a try and impress your friends and family with this tasty and nutritious meal?
