So, What's a plantain?
Plantains are related to the banana, but unlike their yellow relatives we see in the grocery store, you wouldn’t want to eat a raw plantain. Green plantains are usually cooked before consumed. While yellow/brown plantains are often fried or baked and taste sweet, green plantains are starchy and have less sugar than bananas.
While we in America are starting to see more and more plantains in grocery stores, restaurants, and in packaged food, we’re a little late to the game. Plantains are the 10th most important staple crop eaten worldwide. And its no wonder when you consider that they grow year round and are incredibly dense with vitamins and minerals!
