VARIOUS PLANTAIN DISHES IN THIS THREAD

Stuffed Plantains:

If you love dodo, boiled plantain, boli and are looking for another way to satisfy your plantain craving, try STUFFED plantains. You can basically stuff your plantain with whatever you like.

In the picture below, I have bacon wrapped roasted plantain stuffed with spinach (efo) and topped with shrimp and crispy bacon.
Delicious!!!

Be creative and use your imagination - beans, rice and beans, beans and fish, suya, you name it. If you like it, you can try stuffing your plantains with it.

Tip: slice off a little bit from the curve of the plantain, to give it a flat base so it can sit.

Prepping my overripe plantains for Tai-Tai (Itsekiri Plantain Fritters)

Plantains
Gari
Onions
Crayfish
Salt
Spice

Mash all your ingredients together, form into burger-like patties and fry.

Serve on their own as a snack, with a sauce as an appetizer, with other vegetables etc.

Glad you tried and enjoyed it!
Corn is a great substitute and comes out delicious too.
If you are on the fitfam journey any healthy grains etc are great substitutes.
I have also tried ground brown rice (ofada in naija).

Great thread...I love plantains a lot!

Dodo, Gizdodo, and other variants of plantain
such as boiled plantains, and pounded
yam/plantain mix with some wonderful
egusi soup and smoked fish... are
kick-ass meals! grin

I want to try that Itsekiri plantain food
called TaiTai... it looks inviting.

Great post.
