Black-Eyed Peas and Tomatoes with Bananas

Black-Eyed Peas and Tomatoes with Bananas

Serves 4

Inspired by the dish red-red from Ghana, this simple stew of tomatoes and black-eyed peas is traditionally served with fried plantains. Cooked bananas are a great substitute and the flavor combination, while surprisingl, is tasty and balanced. Inspired by Whole Planet Foundation® microcredit client recipes.
