Today I have a really simple recipe to share with you all! You only need three ingredients and ten minutes of prep time to whip up these really delicious, sweet Caramelized Plaintains! These are a great snack or dessert, and can even be served alongside a protein like chicken or fish!
When you heat up the plaintains (which have been sprinkled with brown sugar) over some heat, a beautiful thing happens. The caramelization is the sugar transforming into a deliciously crisy, sweet crust. It adds a little bite to the otherwise-creamy and soft plaintains! It’s a wonderful balance of textures! And when you serve the warm plaintains with a dollop (or two) of whipped cream, you also get a wonderful balance of temperatures: hot plaintains and cold cream! Yum!
1 tbsp. brown sugar
whipped cream (optional)
1. Slice the plaintains diagonally.
2. Spray a non-stick spray on a pan and place it on the stove. After the pan has warmed up, place the plaintains on the pan. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top.
3. Flip them over. After they have cooked on both sides, remove from heat. Optional: Serve with some whipped cream!
It’s a really tasty dessert that is so quick to prepare!
