Have you ever had plantains? Well if you haven't as yet you should because they are so worth the try!

Plantains are related to bananas and they can both be easily mistaken. Plantains have less sugar, starchier, and more versatile to prepare. They can be added to stews, soups, baked, mashed, boiled and fried. They are primarily cooked before being eating and are a great substitute for potato, rice, and bread.

Plantains are low in fat, a great source of potassium, fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, magnesium.

In a Study, dried plantain powder was found to be beneficial in healing aspirin-induced gastric ulcers.

We got these plantains and I decided to use them as a base in this recipe. I baked them in the oven, while I prepared the guacamole. The pineapple guacamole was so delicious and such a perfect compliment. You can substitute my Homemade Guacamole recipe for a more savory recipe.
