Vegan MoFo 18 – Day 7

Today’s prompt – Colour

I chose yellow for today’s meal. I’ve been a bit ill the last week so a nice bright yellow meal to cheer me up was what I needed.

I made ackee with plantain. Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica and has yellow flesh in a red pear shaped outer and large black seeds. You can buy it in Supermarkets in the UK in the world food aisle.

I roasted tomatoes in the oven, pan fried the plantain and set to one side, then fried red onions added the tomatoes and the ackee. I try not to stir it too much so the ackee isn’t broken up.

I managed to keep a few pieces fully intact! The flavour is very mild and you mainly taste the salt from the brine it is stored in.

What are your favourite yellow foods? Let me know in the comments below.
