Black-Eyed Pea and Tomato Stew (Red-Red) (Durotherm)
This Ghanaian dish is traditionally made with red palm oil, but we liked more widely available coconut oil instead. We preferred Whole Foods' 365 Everyday Value canned black-eyed peas for their soft, creamy texture. Goya brand, sold in slightly larger cans, also yielded good results, but the texture was a bit firmer. Fried plantains are the typical accompaniment to red-red. We liked the simplicity and crunch of store-bought plantain chips. If you like, garnish the stew with cilantro leaves and, for added spice, offer hot sauce at the table
