Black-Eyed Peas and Tomatoes with Bananas

Serves 4
Time 30 min
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 surprising, is tasty and balanced. Inspired by Whole Planet Foundation® microcredit client recipes.

Method

Heat oil in a large high-sided skillet over medium heat.

Add onion and cook about 10 minutes or until golden and tender, stirring frequently.

Stir in garlic, ginger and cayenne and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Add tomatoes and peas and bring to a simmer.

Cook 15 minutes or until peas are tender and flavors have blended. Stir in salt.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a separate skillet over medium-high heat.

Reduce heat to medium, add bananas and cook about 5 minutes or until browned on both sides, gently flipping halfway through cooking.

Serve alongside black-eyed peas in a shallow bowl.
