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 am confused too. I appears that your blood panel was indeterminate, but that your NP had you on a grain free diet for five weeks prior. You went back on gluten for two weeks (recommendation is 2 to 4) for the endoscopy. Maybe it was not enough time for your antibodies to build up and start a...

I looked at your past posts, but I?m not sure i know what you were eating then and what you?ve stopped eating now. Also what sort of medical workups you?ve had and what were the results. I understand your biopsy was negative - but I also saw on one post that you were worried they only took one bi...

I've posted a few different topics, so I thought I would just update in one post. I am seeing my GP later today, but apparently my biopsy results were negative. I have no further information on this. What I do know, is that I have been feeling much worse since giving up gluten after my gluten cha...

It doesn't change DH, but it always makes me smile thinking someone means Dear Husband instead of the rash.

It's done this since I started on here, many years ago. Kind of funny when people type g f meaning girlfriend...... ?
