I thought I had gotten all the plantain craze out of me, but I was soooooo wrong. I wanted to make a better plantain bread that was heartier than my sope recipe and could handle a whole lot of sandwich punch per bite. Once you try these you will understand what that means!
This is a great treat for an after school snack, an appetizer, a side to along with a salad, etc. You can fill the center with whatever you want. Don’t think you have to fill it with what I chose. Get creative and have fun! Let your kitchen be your playground.
- 2 large plantains. (Not too ripe. Still a little green.)
- 1 cup frozen cauliflower rice
- 1/3 cup avocado oil
- 1/3 cup nut flour (I made a combo of cashew hazelnut flour. Almond flour would work just fine too.)
- 1 tsp of 21 Salute seasoning from Trader Joe’s and 2 tsp of Everyday seasonings from Trader Joe’s.
- 2.5 tbsp of golden flax meal
- 1 splash of water
- a handful of fresh basil
On a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper, pour out contents. Spread evenly with a spatula. Press your basil into the batter. Bake for about 18-20 mins on 350.
Once it has come out of the oven, cut the bread evenly into squares. We are now approaching the fun part!
If you have a grill pan you will have beautiful grill marks on your sandwich. Make sure to spray your pan or put a little oil in the pan. Flip your sandwich so that it cooks on each side.
