The Absolute Best Combinations to Enjoy Beans

June 26, 2022

Foods have different levels of chemistry, much in the same way people do. Beans isn’t any different. If you love beans, then here are seven foods that make the experience even better.

Bread

If Captain America were a meal, he’d be beans and bread. Nobody knows exactly what makes it so delicious. Is it the beans, or is it the bread? No one knows. These two foods have so much chemistry that eating them just makes you feel so good inside. Beans and bread should be a love language.

Plantain

This OG combo needs no introduction. It’s second only to bread and beans — and that is even debatable in some circles. Plantain already takes the winning prize for “Best in Side Dish”. If beans were Batman, plantain would be Robin.

Garri

Desperate times require desperate measures. Garri and Beans is a meal for desperate times. This combo reminds you of the better times. Eating beans with garri while managing your last ₦1,000 hits really hard. But if you’re bougie and missing the trenches, it also works.

Suya

We don’t know why but suya makes everything so much better. Maybe it’s because of all the darkness that goes into making it.

Fried Eggs

This is a meal for people who want to say, “Do your worst!” to their digestive system but simply haven’t had the chance. It’s giving bravery. If you’re looking to up your protein intake, then this is definitely your thing.

Groundnuts

Eat groundnut alone and your body will remind you that you’re still in the trenches. But eat it with beans, and see how you look like a 19th-century colonial master.

Corn

If you’ve tried this combination before, you know it’s heaven. The corn can be added as a garnish to the beans or taken as a side dish. Either way, the combo bangs.

Pap/Custard

What’s the difference between pap and custard? We don’t really know, but someone said it’s the same as the difference between Island and Mainland Lagos. Here’s what we do know, though: they both go really well with beans, especially on a Sunday morning.

Oats

This deserves a honorable mention. We don’t know why people enjoy this combo but our theory is that it’s one of those mediocre foods that get a lot of praise; like caviar.
