Recipe Details

Red Red is a traditional Ghanaian dish consisting of black eyed peas and the traditional combination of garlic, chilies, tomatoes, and ginger.

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large heavy bottom pot. Add onions and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add ginger, garlic, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes. Fry in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add stock, beans, and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Fry plantains at 350°F for 2-3 minutes or until they begin to brown. Add fried plantains to Red Red. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes to allow plantains to absorb some flavor.
