Plantains…


What about Plantains?

    Plantains are indigenous to Southeast Asia and a main staple of many African countries. Most of us are familiar with their use in Spanish cuisine as fried platanos. But when plantains are on the green side they are perfect for thickening stews. If frying is not your thing, when they begin to ripen they are tasty grilled or roasted. When they are overripe with black spots they are wonderful in protein shakes, in pancake batter or in oatmeal.
