Cooking Plantains

A tasty snack that reminds me of vacationing in Mexico with every bite. Although these plantains are certainly not locally grown, I love to make a conscious decision to buy something deliciously tropical. These "bananas" make an affordable and healthy snack or dessert for Mikey and I. I love how easy it is to prepare them. All I need is one plantain and a little butter and the snack dilemma is solved.

What are plantains?

Read about them here.

1 plantain
1 tablespoon butter

Cut plantain into thin slices. The thinner the cut the crisper the plantain. Heat the butter in a sauce pan and drop the plantain slices into the hot butter. Cook for about two minutes each side or until they become golden like the picture. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Plantains are fabulous. My family is from Guatemala and I grew up eating these. We like to have them with honey and maple syrup. Scrumptious.
