“This is a very simple side dish from Puerto Rico (actually, I think it's from the carribian in general, but I learned it in Puerto Rico) Plantains look like giant bananas (Tastes NOTHING like bananas), but taste like potatoes when cooked BUT... the blacker the plantain gets, the sweeter it tastes. This recipe calls for a very yellow plantain.”
