Boiled Plantain with Vegetable egg stew

I love plantain and it's definitely on the list of "favorite foods" for many. This is why it's not unusual to get carried away with fried plantain day in day out as that's the most popular way to enjoy ripe plantains but have you tried boiling instead? To be frank, boiled plantain is definitely a healthier option than frying.  According to research, one cup of raw plantain contains 181 calories, while 1 cup of fried plantains contains 365 calories. If you are worried about the number of calories, you should try boiling, baking or steaming insteadBoiled plantain is really easy to make and can be enjoyed with just about any type of stew or sauce. 

How to make Boiled plantain with Vegetable egg sauce
• Prep time:   3 mins
• Cook Time: 15 mins
• Serves :       2


Ingredients:::
• 4 ripe plantain
• 1/2 tsp. Salt 
• Water

Directions:::
Step 1: Wash the plantains with clean water and cut into 2 or 3 depending on the size you want

Step 2: Place the cut plantains into a medium sized pot. Add some water just enough to cover the plantains in the pot and cook on medium heat for 10mins. Add the salt and cook further for 5mins before turning off the burner.

Step 3: Remove the skin and serve with Vegetable egg sauce, Tomato egg sauce, Chicken or Beef stew.

    1. Boiling without the skin makes the plantain soggy. It's always advisable to boil with the skin.
