Alot of us folks from Central/S America cook with them. One of my favorite ways to make them into "tostones". Fry some thick pieces. When done take them out and smash flat. Throw them in a bowl with whatever spices you like and toss them around to season everything.
Now my question. I want to try and make like a stuffed plantain or plantain bowl with filling
thinking of taking them and grinding them up into a paste and form them into bite size cups/bowls and them stuffing them with some type of filling(not sure what at this point).
I'm wondering if i need to add anything to the plantain paste to help them stay in whatever form i create before frying them up(maybe even in the oven)?
I've never made them by grinding/smashing pre cooked before so i have no idea if i have to add or counter anything.
Also, since i usually spice them up after cooking would it be cool to throw something into the pre cooked mix?
Favorite way to enjoy them but with Black Beans
