A very simple and quick way to cook plantain. The great taste and texture of the plantain is complemented well by the raisins.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, or as needed
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 3 large green plantains, peeled and grated
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or more to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until slightly softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add plantains; cook, stirring occasionally, until plantains are crisp and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. The plantain has a tendency to stick together, so the more you stir the more the individual pieces will separate.
  2. 2 Fold raisins into plantain mixture and cook until raisins are plump and heated, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt.

  1. I added dried cranberries instead of raisins so my family would eat it and finely chopped the plantain because we don't have a shredder. Otherwise I made it as directed and it was a huge hit.
