As a child one of my favorite meals was “cocido” which is boiled ripe plantain with butter and shredded cheese. Now I have modified this favorite dish to make it Paleo friendly and although I would not have this as a meal now it makes a great side dish. Some complex carbs from the ripe plantain and protein with some fat needed for a balanced diet.
When making this I use 4 very ripe plantains. One package of Apple gate uncured bacon. One tablespoon of grass-fed butter.
Method: Boil plantains until soft. Meanwhile, chop bacon and cook on stove top. Once plantains are done mash with fork and add butter. Mix well. Add bacon once cooked and mix all together.
