How to make it

  • Boil the plantains until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from water and put into a bowl, put the butter in to melt and sprinkle some adobo up in there. Mash with a potato masher. It's still gonna be hella lumpy so if you really want to do it up, I suppose you can use an immersion blender. Add the milk to make it creamy. (I used cashew milk, which is actually creamier than regular milk. Add little bits at a time because you may not need as much as I did)
  • In a skillet on medium flame, saute the onions, jalapeños, corn, beans, garlic and kale. Add the tomatoes (and salsa if desired) when the onions and stuff caramelize, deglaze the pan with the tomato juice. It's yummeh! (I didn't time it, just make sure you pay attention)
  • Add spices and stir well. Cover if possible. Lower the heat and let it cook for another 10-15 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
  • Add the cilantro and lime juice like 2 minutes before everything is done, and stir well. Serve the plantains with the stew on top, garnish with more fresh cilantro, a lime wedge and parsley for festive presentation.
  • Add some shredded cheese too, if you want, because holy crap that would be amazing and I really wish I had some. Do you have some? If so, use it, and then come give the rest of it to me because I have leftovers.

    I turn my back for five seconds and look what you went and done did :o)
    Don't you know that a man can not live on green plantains alone ~ Grin ~
    Do I have to take the training wheels off your bicycle to make it more difficult for you to get to the store so the phrase...'One is good,but,two is better' subsides and quiets the riot in your cortex..."I need these,I really,really need these!"
    Be adventures,don't you know that Mother Nature has more instore for you?
    Take for example...Durian...a tasty rich custard flavor.A tad thorny and smells like old gym socks,but once you get past that it's a slice of heaven,and maybe...Mongosteen...with a reward on its head by Queen Victoria who loved the sweet,tangy,citrusy flavor,but bring the axe and off with its head,for it has a hard shell to get through,so perhaps the purse of the palace prevails on this forty five dollar a pound prize for the royal potentate...and also take into consideration that Mark Twain was not wrong in his assessment of the...Cherimoya...and his liking of the pineapple,banana,bubblegum flavor of this green thing that kinda' looks like a hedge apple...and am I forgetting the wine makers? Nope!...for once you scape the red scales of the...Aquaje fruit... it makes a decent,if you were so silly to forget to us a potholder when you reached for that hot handle of your cooking thought I was going to say hot hookah handle didn't you :o) well,anyway,you can treat the burn,and the...Jabuticaba...can make you a purple pimple wine indeed,and we mustn't forget...Capuacu...for dessert with its chocolatey pineapple appeal and yes,Capuacu makes a nice lotion as well...Hum,well? "It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.Yes,it will Precious won't it?" "Oh, Clarice." "Yes,Lecter?" "Would you please pass the liver,fava beans,and that nice Chianti" :o) You may not care Jack S#!@ about this,but you better pump iron if you want to lift this six thousand year old eighty pounder...shucks,it's kinda' like a plantain in away,only on steroids,you can slice it and deep fry it into crunchy,delicious Jackfruit chips...and last,but not least...Miracle Fruit...this red beauty can made your taste buds shape a sensitive sensation of sweetness when you are indulging in a lemon.
    I believe the manuscript is ready to turn in for the night.
    Look at it this way...whatelse were your going to do with your time this evening :o)
    Note...Do not hesitate to delete this :o)
    Kind Regards
