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. MORE + LESS -
