Yum yum. Have you tried Plantains before? I ate this for breakfast, along with a green smoothie. Plantains are a popular food in Bermuda, which is where I spent most of my life. It wasn't until I moved to Canada that I started cooking with plantains though.
They are not as sweet as bananas. They are a bit like a potato/banana hybrid. You can use them in curries or eat them on their own, as I did. Sooo good! They are often prepared in a not so healthy way, so here is a healthy version!
- Black pepper & Sea Salt, to taste
- Maple Syrup / Xylitol
- tiny bit of Coconut Oil
- Get out a non-stick skillet, add about 2-3 tsp of Coconut Oil and heat on medium-high heat. Peel and slice the plantain and place in an even layer on the skillet. Sprinkle with black pepper and sea salt and cook for a few minutes, until the one side is toasty brown. Flip the plantains over, add a bit more salt and pepper and drizzle with a small amount of maple syrup, or sprinkle some xylitol on top.
- When both sides are browned, remove from heat and serve. I like having them with some ketchup, on top on my salads and in currys. So delicious!
