Crispy Plantain Patties (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/Wonderyort

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.

Crispy Plantain Patties (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
  • ¼  cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 3 green onions chopped into ¼ inch pieces
Nutty Filling Ingredients
  • 2 cups soaked cashews
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 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.

This sounds like a delicious recipe! Growing up on Latin food, this is definitely a great gluten-free alternative to a Latin-style meal.

Thank you for this interesting article and recipe, however, I would like something a bit more basic, as well as some info on how to shop for and pick good plantains.

I'm hoping to donate to celiac research this year. Does anyone have recommendations as to where to donate? Celiac Disease Foundation? Celiac research at a hospital or university? Thanks!

I didn't realize it was so difficult to even get the tests to begin with. Thank you both SO much. I feel much better & am more comfortable going into my doctors app...

Just looking at its name, one might wonder if buckwheat is safe for people on a gluten-free diet. However, unlike its name, buckwheat does not naturally contain any wheat or gluten. As a result, buckwheat is generally safe for people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet. Turns out that buc...

Oh my I just re read your post. Ok now I am going to definitely say yes-you need to find someone who will test you. If this Dr. will not you may want to look for one who will. I slowly reveal my issues on here and I still keep things close to the vest. My pregnancies/labor/deliveries we...

I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut. But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen. It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
