See Hiding Health Benefits of OKPA That You May Not Know

Okpa is prepared from the leguminous plant called Bambara nut (scientifically named Voandzea subterranean). Okpa has numerous health benefits.

Here are a few nutrients found in Okpa; Its seed is said to consist of:
49%-63.5% carbohydrate,
15%-25% protein,
4.5%-7.4% fat,
5.2%-6.4% fiber,
3.2%-4.4% ash and 2% mineral

See all that fibre! Now I understand why they say if you eat Okpa for lunch, you will not be able to eat again that day. I have never had it though Okpa lovers, does it taste like moimoi? .

These Bambara nuts boost blood production, they are rich in Iron. They supply remedy for lack of sleep, help treat insomnia and get your body relaxed for a good night sleep.

Help fight arthritis, okpa reduces the danger of stomach cancer, lowers cholesterol and even fights anaemia also known as kwashiorkor. Bambara beans are rich in antioxidant properties that help you fight quick aging; they are rich in proteins, carbohydrates and varying minerals. They are also reported to be therapeutic… Try them and see.

OKPA INGREDIENTS:

3 cups okpa flour (Shop measuring cup sand measuring spoons)
1 tablespoon ground pepper
salt to taste
2 seasoning cubes (I think I used one cube, not sure now)
Water

COOKING DIRECTION:

Mix the flour with a little water to form a paste.

Add palm oil until you get desired colour, then add the pepper salt and seasoning.

Mix the paste very well before adding hot water and mixing until it becomes runny (Lighter than beans moi moi else the cooked okpa will be dry and hard).

Check for salt and taste

Tie in santana bags and drop in a pot of boiling water. Let the water be much, enough to cook the okpa for one hour.

Serve with pap, fish, soaked garri or just enjoy with nothing.
