Ghanaian Vegan Red Red Stew

Guest recipe by Taalib Adanse

Taalib Adanse Ghanaian Red Red Recipe Tropical Sun Black Eye Beans

Serves: 4-6/ Cooking time: 1 hour/ Difficulty: Easy/ Suitability: Vegan

Spicy, smoky and packed with protein, Red Red has nourished Ghanaian families for generations and is quickly becoming a firm favourite of vegans worldwide. Incredibly simple to prepare, it is traditionally served alongside fried plantain, white rice and gari, but is equally as good with some sliced avocado. We recommend cooking it up in large batches and freezing individual portions so that you can always eat something delicious, even if you don't fancy cooking from scratch.
