    Plantains are commonly used for cooking in most tropical regions. Under ripe plantains or green plantains have a starchy texture, whereas overripe plantains have a sweeter taste; both are delicious.  This recipe works best with green plantains, and it is dairy, egg, corn and gluten-free.

    Serving Size:
    Makes about 4 large  patties

    Patty Ingredients

    • 3 cups mashed small green bananas (approximately 4 plantains)
    • ½ Cup Gluten-free all purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
    • cooking oil
    Topping Ingredients
    • ¾ cup grated carrot

    • 6 Tablespoons olive oil
    • ⅓ cup gluten-free soy sauce
    To Make plantain patties:
    1.  Do not peel the plantains yet. Cut off plantain ends and make cuts along the side by scoring the plantain.
    2. Boil in large pot for approximately 20 minutes with peels (until you can  poke a fork through them).
    3. Drain and let cool.
    4. Remove peels and mash plantains.
    5. Add flour and baking powder to plantains to create a dough.
    6. Roll into four balls and then into 5” patties on a floured counter or cutting board.
    7. Combine cashews, lemon, soy sauce, garlic, and  olive oil in a food processor or blender and blend  until smooth.
    8. Heat a small amount of cooking oil in a skillet over medium and fry cakes until golden brown.
    9. Add  nutty filling and veggie toppings to each patty and serve hot.
    10. Serving suggestion: Serve with a side of beans and  rice for a traditional Puerto Rican meal.

  • About Me

    I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.

    Ingredients:
    2 cup Tapioca Flour (or starch - same thing)
    1 tablespoon Baking powder
    ¾ teaspoon Salt
    1 cup Finely grated Cheese (I use Pecorino Romano for rolls and pizza. Use ½-1 cup sharp cheddar for crackers.)
    3 Large Eggs
    1 tablespoon Olive oil
    3 tablespoons Milk
    Directions:
    Mix dry ingredients and then add wet stuff. Mix together until it's the consistency of cookie dough or moist play dough. You might need to add flour or milk about 2 tablespoons at a time until it's right. It depends on humidity, how large the eggs actually are and other factors that I haven't figured out yet. You can refrigerate it at this point for u...

    "Platano" is a Spanish word for the fruit we Americans know as the plantain. The plantain is a heartier older cousin of the sweet, commercial banana, and a fruit I think is underused here in America. Firmer plantains are commonly used for savory dishes, but as they ripen, they become sweeter. When that happens, they become perfect for desserts and other sweet dishes.
    Look in the dessert section of the menu restaurants across central and South American restaurants,  and you will find fried plantains, or platanos fritos.
    This version of plantains is quite versatile. I’ve served it as a simple dessert, but it pairs well many breakfast and lunch st...
