What you will need:-

1 slightly ripe plantain

1 red bell pepper

1/2 a red onion

1 spring onion

1 tomato

240 grams of boiled black-eyed peas- (I used canned because it was easier)

Some chopped flat leaf parsley to garnish

Olive oil to drizzle

A pinch of salt and pepper

 

How to:- 

1) Chop up your vegetables and put them aside. (Don’t chop the beans).

4) Put in the oven on the grill setting at 200 degrees for 20 minutes. Flip half way through.

5) Then, wait for all the plantain to cool down and combine all the other ingredients, seasoning and olive oil in a salad bowl.
