As you may remember I made a New Year pledge to make some of the awesome recipes from MoFo. I started out with a simple, fast recipe. I made some mashed plantains. It's really simple. Get a green plantain. Boil it for a while. Mash it. The end!
I think I slightly undercooked my plantain. Boil it until it is very easily mashed. I would make these again as they are tasty. For some reason I think they are easier than mashed potatoes, but really they are the same amount of work. Boil. Mash. Eat. I would recommend some type of seasoning - I think lime and chili would be good.
