Plantain- A Staple for Many and a Treat for Few



Plantains have surely been on my "never-heard- or tried-before" list. Only after I married my Indian-made husband, I had the chance to meet face to face with this tough cookie. I still have a few of those on my list that I haven't explored yet, nopales and banana flower being just two of them. So when it comes to getting acquainted with new veggies or fruits, The Cook's Illustrated is my official guide. Those guys have done the homework for me, why trouble then? So I take all the advice possible, and get rolling.

Austinites know that Fiesta is a store of abundance, an I know it too. I ended up with a carload of fresh veggies the other day, and my plantains could not wait too long, so I cooked them the South American style, with coconut and plenty of passion! Enjoy!

I have never worked with plantains, but your post has given me the courage to try. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Adeline, My family is raised so it is just Bob and me in the house. I've been retired for 10 years now and have plenty of time to cook and write.
