Green or ripe plantain uses

laisla | Nov 22, 2012 08:18 PM


I would love to find out more ways to use plantains. I currently use them in Dominican Mangu (like mashed potatoes only with green boiled plantains) and tostones. I try to not make maduros (or mariquitas in Cuba) with ripe ones because I try not to fry too much.

Sometimes I wrap semi green ones in aluminium foil, split them in half and insert sazon , a bit of butter and cheese before wrapping them again and baking. They do turn out delicious.

I was wondering if there were any other Caribbean-inspired uses for Plantains
