“Red Red” is a simple and delicious vegetarian dish made of black-eyed beans, tomato sauce, and generally plantains. Red Red originates from Ashanti region in Ghana, but has many adaptions throughout Africa – street food vendors love this recipe for its simplicity and richness. Nowadays, Red Red has become increasingly popular far beyond Africa. Back when I was a kid in Ghana, I remember enjoying this festive dish during school lunches and at home.
