This is a recipe that I invented while exploring new ways to use quinoa as a rice substitute. I feel plantain is a natural and safe way to sweeten a dish without using processed foods or going crazy on calories. Broccoli complements shrimp and quinoa well IMO and gives such a vibrant green when not over-cooked. Plantain can be found in most supermarkets and looks like a big banana. This recipe calls for ripe plantain - not green but yellow skinned, yet a little firm to the touch.
This is a versatile Nigerian bean dish in that you can modify it by changing the ingredients or adding meat to the mix. We serve plain by itself, with fresh white bread, white yams, white rice or boiled/fried plantain. It is a favorite of mine but my friends always request for me to make it.
NOTE: Black eyed peas do not need to be pre-soaked. I use dry beans and make mine super spicy but adjusted the recipe to be mildly spicy.
