Platanitos Maduros {Sweet Plantains}

June 16, 2016

One of my favorite comfort food side dishes growing up was Platanitos Maduros {Sweet Plantains}. This is a common staple in Cuban cuisine. You will find that almost every single meal concocted by a Cuban grandmother, of course, includes a heaping side dish of Platanitos Maduros.

 

 

I always look forward to my sweet Nana’s cooking because I know it includes my very favorite. Most people spend their lifetime without ever getting to try Platanitos Maduros; yet, Cubans are lucky blessed enough eat it on a daily basis. Well, for us, not so much anymore.

 

 

Many people think that this dish of Sweet Plantains is unhealthy—and they are right about the fact that it can be unhealthy—but this version, ladies and gentlemen, is not. Ready to take the plunge? Scroll down & check me out!
