(Fried Sweet Plantain)

The plantain is starchy when it is bright green, but within about a week or two it will turn yellow and will become sweet like a banana, although it can’t be eaten like one.



Heat the oil.


Slice the plantain in ¼ inch slices (typically slice at an angle so the slices are longer).


Add the slices to the hot oil until golden brown on each side — about 5 minutes each side.


Remove from the oil and serve hot with rice and beans.


Note: yellow plantains are naturally sweet so I don’t recommend too much additional sugar.




1 plantain, peeled


Oil to fill ¼ of a medium saucepan
