It’s whats for dinner! Thou shall not waste food! Quinoa + Black Bean Salad, sautéed.
Abundant throughout the year, plantains are to Puerto Rico, like oranges to Florida. Piñón is but one of the dishes prepared with our banana-sque friend. Sweet, roasted and full of savory fillings. A meal on its own, but really good with contrasting textures, such as crisp romaine lettuce and plum tomatoes. I can sleep now =)
While contemplating the shades of grey (not the book) in the sky, I suddenly urged for oatmeal cookies! Adding a bit of unsweetened shredded coconut did miracles Suddenly the day wasn’t so… dull. If you’d like the recipe, contact me via comment, Facebook, or whatever ;). It’s definitely a cure for the rainy-day blues.
¡Piñón! Perhaps the most common dish made from ripe plantains in the Caribbean, after amarillitos, fried cuts of mature plantains served as a sweet side dish. Piñón is like lasagna, but with layers of ripe plantains, and no tomato sauce. Usually the plantains are fried prior to layering, but I don’t want anything clogged-up, except my mouth with delicious food. =)
