Because I work at a burrito shop that has great tacos, I don’t usually make them at home. The craving came up the other day though for plantain tacos so I whipped some up! They were much different than what we have at work so I was happy that I had made them. I highly recommend these as a filling vegetarian dinner and something new to eat next week!
Roger Mooking has a commercial on Cooking Channel where he whips together a tasty looking simple plantain gratin and it inspired me to make a more intricate deeper version of a plantain casserole. I wanted lots of layers of tasty things that I think go with plantains, like black beans, cojita cheese, onions, tomato, and habanero. I also mixed in a little quinoa just to add a little more substance and protein to the veggie dish. The whole thing turned out great, but make sure you use really ripe plantains. Most of mine were nice and yellow, but a few still had a little green to them and they were very noticeable and we mostly ate around them.
I was sitting having breakfast with my Aunt and Uncle, and they were flipping through an early early draft of Stuffed, when they mentioned a tasty stuffed treat they had while on vacation in Puerto Rico. The Plantain Canoes, or “Canoas”, are usually filled with a ground meat mixture and topped with cheese. I was happy to have a new dish to try and make, but also wished that such a fun unique dish could have made it into the book! I decided to make these canoes into rowboats because they are faster.
A few months back, I made some tostone tostadas. The initial plan of that meal was for them to be sandwiches, but the fillings were not solid enough, and the tostones a little thick. I’m glad that plan didn’t work out because for one, those tostadas were delicious, but more importantly, the destiny of the tostone sandwich was clearly to house ham, pork, pickles, cheese, and mustard.
