(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.

 

Instructions

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.

 

Ingredients
