Sauteed Plaintain


Green plantains are used to make the tropical snack plantain chips; the less ripe they are the less sweet they are.

The skins of ripe plantain often look black and are not the obvious choice when you are new to buying plantain but they are the sweetest. Not too ripe though. Do a squeeze test because you don’t want mush either. Be sure not to get green plantains for this dish unless you will be leaving them to ripen for a week!Green ones are very starchy and best for boiling in hearty soups and stews. Yellow plantains are sweet and can be used for this dish too but for perfect results used plantains that are turning from yellow to black in ripeness. You may just see which ones you prefer.


1 – 2 tbsp coconut oil
2 large ripe plantain
