This Fried Plantain With Mushrooms Is A Whole New Experience!
For this meal, you will need coconut oil for frying, 10 plantains, a cup of mushrooms, peanut butter, and onions. If you need to change some ingredients, try using vegetable oil, big white mushrooms or portobello, and spinach. You can also add extra vegetables to create a more filling dish!
Before you do anything else, soak the mushrooms in cold water. Start peeling the plantains and then slice them lengthwise into two equal-sized pieces.
Boil the plantains and mushrooms in different pans. Once the mushroom is tender, remove them and drain any excess water. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the plantains until they are golden brown. Set them aside once done.
By this time, the mushrooms should have sufficiently boiled. Remove any excess water and fry until they are also golden brown. Add in the onions and fry for another 3 minutes. Season the mixture with some salt until you reach the desired taste.
Add in a teaspoon of peanut butter, a cup of water, simmer for 15 minutes, and voila!
Serve your meal warm and enjoy with a salad. You can also serve it on its own as a quick snack.
Other ways you can enjoy this dish include serving with warm rice. You can use healthy brown rice, serve the fried plantains, and everything else on top.
