FAQs about plantains

You can add plantains to many dishes where you would usually use potatoes, sweet potatoes, or rice. Fried plantains are popular in many parts of the world where these fruits grow. You can fry them with rum, cinnamon, and brown sugar for a sweet treat, or serve them as part of dinner with barbecued meat, chili and onions, or a stew with beans. In India, people dip plantains in sweetened rice and flour before frying them. In Puerto Rico, a dish called Pinon is similar to lasagna, but plantains replace the layers of pasta.

You can also grill or roast plantains. Some people cook them inside the peel, and others peel them and wrap them in plantain leaves. You can use plantains instead of coconut milk in many curries as well.

They're high in fiber, keeping your digestion healthy, and they're ideal for people who want to lose weight. The antioxidants in plantains can help protect you from cancer and heart disease, and their thick peels keep pollutants and pesticides away from the fruit.
