Fried plantains are a great side dish, snack or addition to any meal! If you’re ready to add plantains to your life but aren’t sure how (like I was for way too long) you are in luck. My recipe is super simple and they are ready to eat within a few minutes. If you are paleo or avoiding grains, it can be hard to find a variety of carbohydrates to incorporate. I find myself eating sweet potatoes most of the time, but plantains are a great way to switch up your menu! They make an excellent side dish, quick snack, or addition to any meal.
