Need an easy way to prepare plantains? Try this simple mashed plantains recipe! There are two versions – sweet and savory – to suit your needs. Paleo, gluten free, and Whole30.
- 2 large plantains
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup ghee, melted
- 1 clove garlic, minced (~1 teaspoon)
- Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water. Slice lengthwise down the peel of each plantain and chop each plantain horizontally into 3 or 4 chunks. No need to peel it now—it’s significantly easier to peel after boiling!
- Add the plantain chunks to the pot and bring the water to boiling. Boil for 7 to 10 minutes, until the plantains can easily be pierced with a fork.
- Use a slotted spoon to remove the plantain. Pull the peels off and discard. Put the plantain in a large bowl, add the rest of the ingredients, and mash with a potato masher. Add more liquid (ghee or coconut milk) to get to your desired consistency. Easy. As. Pie.
