1 large ripe plantain (peeled and chopped)

2 eggs

3 tbs of oil

1/2 medium size onions

1 tin of sardines

1 tbs of dried scent leaves (nchuanwu)

1 tbs Green onions (for garnish)

1 tbs Red bell pepper (for garnish)

Black pepper




Heat the oil in a pan.

Add the plantains.

Sprinkle salt and black pepper and stir.

When the plantain starts to turn brown, add the sardines (drain out  some of the oil from the sardine tin and remain a little).

Add dried Scent leaves (if you have the fresh one you can also add it at this point).

Whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt and pour over the food.

Lower the heat to the lowest and cover the pan. This will allow eggs to cook and set.

Turn off the heat

Garnish with green onions and red bell peppers

Serve and eat as breakfast or put in a wrap for lunch or dinner.
