    Sharon123's Note:

    I haven't tried this, but it sounds very interesting. The brown rice is cooked with tomato juice, topped with an onion sauce and garnished with golden fried bananas. You make the sauce and fry the bananas while the rice cooks. Sounds like a yummy meal to me! From Angola, Africa. From wiki.

      This was a flavorful, easy dish. I did add some chicken left over from another dish, but otherwise followed all the directions. I think the thing that made it 4 stars not 5 was that I'm such a plantain novice that I chose a green plantain (actually the one at the store that looked the most yellow-y) and it was quite hard, dry and had no flavor. It was like tiny hockey pucks adorning the rest of the ingredients. I will make this again if I ever score some black plantains! Made for My Food Odyssey 2013

      We really enjoyed the appearance and flavors if this dish. I used a natural peanut butter so the sauce was not sweet, but the bananas were! I liked all the vegetables in this. I intended it as a side dish, but the portions are very generous and it makes a satisfying main dish. Made for "My Food Odyssey" - Angola.
