“Ever notice those big giant freaky looking banana-like creatures in the produce section?
Yes! The plantains!
Plantains always seemed a little mysterious.
Do you eat them while green?
Are they supposed to be so black like that, if they aren’t green?
What is considered ripe?
And so on.
As it turns out, plantains are quite versatile and can wear many hats in the kitchen.
Plantains traditionally can be steamed, fried into chips, or mashed up for baby food, just like other bananas. What makes them different is that the green ones are much starchier, and much less sweet, so they often resemble the flavor of potatoes when cooked at this stage.
Once ripened, plantains can become VERY dark, much darker in fact that smaller bananas we peel and eat.
Once blackened, they become much sweeter, though not as sweet as their little counterparts.
When giving up grain, certain foods become MUCH trickier in trying to create, like TACOS! To our benefit, plantains have a perfect starchy disposition while naturally being void of inflammatory grains like corn. Score! This plantain taco shell takes a little finessing but makes an incredible substitute for those avoiding particular grains and those with dietary sensitivities alike.”
