Need a new complex carbohydrate to freshen your meal prep, refuel your your body post-workout and/or provide energy? Try adding plantains to your diet to pack on muscle or provide a healthy alternative to potato.

This is a “fusion” recipe where I take a traditional Puerto Rican dish and add a little Southern cajun flavor! When cultures and cuisines collide, great things can happen!
