How This Nourishes Your Body
Here in the jungle you can’t just run down the street to whole foods and pick up whatever the heck you want. There is a farmers market once a week- you get what they have, and make it last as long as possible.
This means I have to discover the hundreds of different ways to cook plantains.
Plantains are loaded with nutrients, and make a great replacement for any bread or grain in meals or snacks. Eat them as a side at dinner, a fast snack, or even as a yummy dessert.
There is just something about plantains fried in coconut oil that has me hooked. These babies are completely satisfying, delicious, and nourishing.
1. Preheat oven to 375°
2. Combine the butter or coconut oil, sugar, honey, and cinnamon in a pan and heat until butter is melted.
3. Add plantain to pan and toss to coat.
4. On a parchment lined baking sheet, bake plantain for approximately 15 minutes or until it is nicely browned.
