    Sharon123's Note:

    Inspired by the dish Red-Red from Ghana, this simple stew of tomatoes and black-eyed peas is traditionally served with fried plantains with variations all over Africa. Sauteéd bananas are a great substitute and the flavor combination, while unusual, is tasty and balanced. This recipe was inspired by Whole Planet Foundation microcredit clients.

      Oh yeah! We finished this; must make more next time. I cooked my own black eye peas....2c which made about 6c cooked which was about double the recipe. Love the flavors. It's an easy & delicious recipe. The plantains are so good, I recommend figuring 1 per person. ;) Made for African Tag 3/12. Thank you, Sharon!
