Very easy way to prepare plantains. WARNING!! POKE HOLES IN THE PLANTAINS! Similar to a baking potato, they can explode if you don't poke some holes in the skin. Lesson learned the hard way... :-0 Tastes great though especially if you add butter and brown sugar although butter and a sprinkle of salt is good too.
I actually dont want to give a star review for this either. i went to the store and got a couple plantains. i've never tried them before so i wanted to try this recipe cause its so simple!! but when i made them they were really bad.... turns out my mom told me my plantains weren't ripe yet! they were still green and i just didnt even take that into account before making them!!! so i totally messed up my plantains and didnt really get to try them out the way they are supposed 2 be! but this is a very very simple method and i'm sure they taste great when they are ripe!!! :P made for zwt4
So easy! If you liked baked or cooked bananas you will like this! Plantains are NOT bananas but when black or yellow/brown with lots of black spots- the semi sweet flavor has a touch of banana like taste. They are starchier - like a potato and stay firmer when cooked unlike a banana. This made a fast and energizing breakfast which I drizzled with a little honey. *Made for ZWT*

I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="http://weekendcarnivore.com/">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it. These are banners and buttons from Zaar events in which I have participated: <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=metermaids.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/metermaids.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group14tomato.jpg> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap3/group07kiwi.jpg> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/cookbookZWT.jpg" border="0" alt="I am alw">
