Plantain Tortillas (Two Ways)

Add Plantain Tortillas to the long list of overdue recipes here at Do You Even Paleo.

Since I first tried plantains, I’ve professed how much I love them. I’ve made plantain patties, plantain muffins, plantain cake, plantain beef bowls, and more. These starchy veggies are so incredibly versatile…it’s hard not to love them.

I’ve made plantain tortillas numerous times over the past few years, and I finally took the time to write down my favorite ways to make them. Both of these methods do take a little prep time, but tacos with these tortillas are so freaking good…you won’t regret it!

Healthy and simple doesn’t have to be boring. Need proof? Look no further than these Cinnamon Cumin Roasted Carrots.

Recently, I overheard a couple coworkers talking about pre-made healthy meals from a local company. They decided that while the meals were good, they could have used more flavor. “But,” one coworker said, “you can’t have healthy and flavor.”

Bollocks. Healthy means different things to different people, but one thing healthy should never be is bland and boring. I refuse to live a healthy life that’s devoid of wonderful, flavorful meals.


Mushroom, Bacon, and Cauliflower Casserole |

Mushroom, Bacon, and Cauliflower Casserole

Cold weather months call for hearty side dishes. My mushroom, bacon, and cauliflower casserole is brimming with nourishing, satisfying veggies. If you’re a fan of mushrooms, definitely give this casserole a try—there’s earthy mushroom in every bite, enhanced by umami bacon flavor. The combination is incredible. Add in some cauliflower, spinach, onions, garlic, and fresh herbs, and you’ve got a casserole to remember.


Mashed Potato Waffles |

Mashed Potato Waffles

When you start to think outside the box, many things become possible. Take these mashed potato waffles. Normally you might not think to create something beyond your standard breakfast waffle. But with mashed potato waffles, many new and epic things become possible.

Savory breakfast sandwiches, mostly. But…um…is there anything wrong with that? Nope. Not one thing.


Mashed Plantains (Sweet or Savory) |

Mashed Plantains—Sweet & Savory

I’ve gushed about plantains many times on my blog. And now I’m going back to basics. This mashed plantains recipe is stupid simple, versatile, and can be made in bulk for meals throughout the week. I’ve included a sweet option and a savory option so you can use this recipe regardless of how ripe your plantains are.

For both versions, the method is the same; the ingredients just differ slightly between the two. Pair either version with a variety of meals — shredded beef, grilled chicken, plantain and olive beef bowls (er, wait…I haven’t shared that recipe yet!).
