The Almighty Plaintain Omelette

Yes yes, start the day right. 

Justine's plantain omelette is our absolute favourite Ghanaian breakfast (optional sausage). Make sure your plantains are ripe - they should be turning black for optimum sweetness. 

We were lucky enough for Justine to share with us her famous recipe. Justine is the head chef at Meet Me There African Eco Lodge in Dzita, Ghana. Her other exceptional dishes include mouth watering groundnut stew, hearty red red and sticky sweet plantain fritters.
