Plantain Sandwich Rolls
So I have never known what to do with a plantain - it is kind off a banana but not .... But I came across this recipe on "deliciousobsessions" blog I just knew I had to try it!
They were so easy to make and everyone enjoyed them - definitely a recipe to keep :)
2 yellow Plantains (try to make sure they are more yellow than green or brown - mine were just about too brown)
1 tsp sea salt
1 C tapioca flour
Pre-heat the oven to 375F
Puree the plantains in the blender - make them nice and smooth
Combine the plantains with the flour and salt until a dough forms (it will be quite sticky)
Put 2-3 Tbsp on a tray lined with parchment paper (or use a silicon baking sheet)
Flatten with the back of your spoon till they are about 3 inch rounds no more than 1/4 inch thick
Bake for 20-25 mins (until the edges are golden brown)
This made 8 rounds
1 round would be a yellow
2 rounds would be a yellow and a purple
We have used ours for sandwiches, burgers and even for Sunday brunch topped with an egg and bacon for a Sunday brunch!
Plantains - who knew they would make great bread!
Sandwich rounds - they were amazing, slightly chewy texture but didn't taste overly like banana
