Nigerian Breakfast: Plantain & Eggs
This would be a typical Nigerian breakfast.
To replicate, here’s what you’ll need:
2 ripe plantains
1/2 s/ yellow onion
4-5 small grape tomatoes
1 can titus sardines
1 clove garlic
Ginger (same size garlic)
1. Cut tips off plantain at both ends. Slice down center. Peel and remove outer covering. Slice (diagonally or rounds) in bowl. Sprinkle pinch of salt, work into plantain. Deep fry till golden brown (about 15 minutes).
2. Break eggs into bowl. Slice garlic, ginger, onions and tomatoes into eggs. Mix, then add sardines (drain the oil).
3. In a frying pan, heat 2 tbsps canola oil (use medium heat). Add egg mixture. Let underside set, then flip and scramble. Let other side cook. Once cooked, spoon over plantain.
I had some Heinz 57 sauce on the plantain (not showing)… it’s a cross between ketchup and mild chili sauce, pretty good.
