Plantain and Black-Eyed Pea Bowl

share this post



This recipe contains some of my favourite flavours in the world- plantain, coriander, red onion…(I know the last one is weird haha). Together this dish is light, refreshing and bursting with deliciousness! Inspired by Mexican burrito bowls, all I can say is that you have to make it! It is also vegan-friendly and plant-based with the freshest of ingredients combining to create magic! An added bonus is that it only took 20 minutes to create! Without further ado, here is the recipe: 


Total Time 20 mins
Servings 1 bowl


  • 1/2 ripe plantain
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Baby gem lettuce
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/6 red onion
  • 1 lime
  • 100g cooked black eyed peas
  • Coriander leaves
  • Chilli flakes
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Chop your plantain into pieces. Add salt to taste and your coconut oil. Place in the oven at 180*C for 15 minutes or until brown.
  • Chop your lettuce up and add to a bowl. Drizzle with your extra virgin olive oil and add your black eyed peas. 
  • Chop up your cherry tomatoes, red onion and a bit of coriander. Add to a bowl and mix. Squeeze 1/4 lime onto the mixture and add to your salad and black eyed peas bowl.
  • In another bowl, mix your mashed avocado, chilli flakes, 1/4 lime, a bit of coriander, salt to taste and garlic powder. Add your avocado mixture to the salad bowl.
  • When the plantain is ready, add to your bowl as well! Enjoy!
