ingredients

directions

  • To peel plantains, cut off ends then cut in the middle or into thirds if very large. Then make a slice through lengthwise, from cut end, to cut end. Make another slice a quarter of the way around and then peel off that piece. I often make 3 -4 cuts equidistant around then peel them off with the side of the knife. They should just pop off.
  • Boil the plantains until tender (like potatoes). Drain and reserve the broth. Mash plantains, adding reserved water broth plus 1 T. butter or oil until they look like mashed potatoes. Add salt.
  • In meantime while boiling plantains, fry the bacon and drain on paper towels. With 1 T. of oil left over or any other you have, fry the onion until limp and add crumbled up bacon if desired.
  • Transfer mangu to platter and top with onions.

    My husband gives it four out of five stars and he is a picky eater.
