Lightly Fried Yellow Plantain

Submitted by: BTRUE2YOU

Introduction

You don't have to use the oil if you don't want to, you can use pam, but either way cooked sweet yellow plantains are so delicious.

This recipe is just for cooking the plantain, but after it's cooked you can do so much w/ the plantains. You can add cinnamon and splenda, or for something more savory top off w/ ground turkey or chicken and a sprinkle of cheese after it's cooked.

Make sure to use a yellow plantain that has black spots more than yellow skin. These will be the sweetest.
