Enjoy this tasty side made using plantains - perfect for Island cuisine.
Updated Oct 24, 2013

Ingredients

  • 4 underripe plantains, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 2 to 3 cups beef broth, warmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh cilantro leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat 1 inch oil in deep 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until oil starts to shimmer (about 350°F). Add plantain slices; cook until golden brown and tender. Remove from oil.
  • 2
    Flatten the plantains using the bottom of a flat-bottomed glass bottle or a tostonera, if you have one. Return flattened plantains to skillet; cook for 30 seconds on each side or until slightly crisp. Remove from skillet; place in large bowl. Cool slightly.
  • 3
    Place plaintains, garlic and 1 cup of the broth in food processor. Process until mixture has the consistency of chunky mashed potatoes, adding broth 1/4 cup at a time. Add salt and pepper; process until mixed.
  • 4
    Spoon into serving bowl; garnish with cilantro. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To mellow garlic flavor, sauté in oil just until light golden brown before adding to plantain.
  • tip 2
    Use a handheld potato masher if you do not have a food processor.
  • tip 3
    The beef broth amount depends on the size of the bananas and the desired consistency of the recipe.
