If you’ve never tried a plantain before…
It’s so easy! Peel and slice. Heat a bit of butter in a pan. Lay out the sliced plantain in a single layer and top with a bit of brown sugar. I used Sukrin Gold, a brown sugar substitute. After about 5 minutes, flip over and saute until browned, about another 5 minutes!
Plantains are almost always eaten when they are ripe and cooked. The outside is brown/black. They will still be very firm on the inside. They are members of the banana family, but they are starchier and lower in sugar.
Pop your toast in the toaster while you’re cooking, and you have a delicious breakfast. I’ll eat it with a good seeded whole grain bread and peanut butter, too.
