Macrewa is soon becoming a legend… It was coined out of its two main ingredients- macaroni and ewa (which means beans in Yoruba). This rev came as a result of Obafemi Awolowo University Awo Hostel boys who are renowned to make spaghetti with beans- “Spagewa”. The other reason I like the name is because I need a MacBook Pro like soonest…


When I first made this, I ate it in the middle of the night, that’s against my diet rules… but tonight, it didn’t matter because it couldn’t wait! Amazeballs! yes! yes! finally found a reason to use this word.

Here’s the simple recipe;


Step 1

Parboil beans; then cook till soft- with salt and half of the onions, ginger, garlic and black pepper.
