Expert Tips

You can use 2 cubes of chicken bouillon in 6-8 cups of water instead of chicken broth.

Cream of plantain is the perfect recipe to endure the cold winter temperatures. There’s nothing better than preparing a nice soup to warm our bodies. The best part of this recipe is that you can vary it by combining other ingredients you like. This time, I combined green and ripe plantains with a bit of ground ginger and the result was incredibly delicious.

You can omit the ripe plantain and use only the green plantain.

Directions

  • 1 Put all of the ingredients into a medium pot.
  • 2 Cook over medium-low heat until the plantain is cooked thoroughly; stir occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  • 3 Remove from the heat and transfer to a blender or a food processor, blend the mixture. If you use a blender, split the mixture into two batches.
  • 4 Serve immediately.
