Flourless Plantain Empanadas

Flourless Plantain Empanadas just made dinner mobile (and tasty AF).

After hours of working with plantains to craft my favorite tortillas, I started dreaming up all the other ways I could use the smooth, pliable dough that a boiled and blended plantain makes.

Springtime Shrimp & Radish Salad

Spring is finally here! Let’s celebrate with a light, citrusy, crunchy shrimp & radish salad.
