Although plantains look like bananas, they’re not! They’re PLANTAINS! Treated more like a vegetable than a fruit, plantains are part of the day-to-day diet of most West African and Caribbean households. You can have them fried, boiled, microwaved, smashed … whatever way you have them, just have them. We’ve always preferred this beloved vegetable fried, sweet and as a side to any of our dishes.
Best of luck with the cooking. Let us know how it goes and let us know how you prefer your plantains.
