When I go shopping, I buy as many plantains as I can because where there is plantain, there is something to cook. It doesn’t matter the state in which the plantains are. The unripe ones could be transformed into a lovely one-pot dish or some crunchy plantain chips if I want to indulge a little. The ripe ones can be fried, boiled, roasted or even made into a pie or pancake. Plantains are so versatile, nutritious and tasty!
I’ll be showing you 5 MUST-MAKE plantain recipes but first, let’s talk a little about this tropical goodness.

Scientifically called Musa paradisiaca, plantains look like bananas and are of the banana family. Think of them as brothers to bananas. They are a staple in tropical regions. They are rich in potassium, vitamins, magnesium, and iron.

Plantains have been described as “the brain-boosting, immune-building fruit.” These plantain recipes will make you lick your fingers while your body absorbs the goodness of plantains. Could anything be better?
