Egg Stew

To prepare this food you basically just add eggs to tomato stew which is the basis for most Ghanaian dishes such as red red and okra stew. It’s an easy and cheap, but nevertheless very tasty meal that can be eaten with rice, yam or plantain and will be even more filling if you add boiled eggs on top!

You need:

4 eggs
1 chopped onion
2 chopped tomatoes
1 tin of tomato puree
1/4 cup of red palm oil
1 cube of vegetable stock
2 ½ teaspoons of red pepper seasoning (a spice mix you can buy everywhere in Ghana. If you can’t get hold of it, replace it with chili)

How to prepare it:

Heat the palm oil in a pot. When the oil is almost boiling, add the chopped onion and stir until it has softened. Add the pepper seasoning and the tomato puree and cook for 5 minutes. Then add the chopped tomatoes and the vegetable stock. Leave to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the stew has boiled down to some sort of gravy. Beat the eggs in a bowl, pour them in the stew and stir until cooked. Season to taste with salt and serve hot with rice, yam or plantain.
