Plantains are a year round delight. They look like bananas, but don’t let their appearance fool you. They are a bit more dense, and are a fantastic vegetable to grill, bake, or fry! Our addiction to plantains is an understatement, so much that we’re always trying to create recipes with them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  We’ve made these as kebabs and most recently as bite sized appetizers. They were a huge hit, and super delicious. Once you start, it’s hard to stop popping them in your mouth! These bites are also gluten & dairy free, so allergy sufferers rejoice!

Make sure the plantains are yellow with black marks on them. This ensures ripeness! Check out your local international food market for great deals on plantains! If you're really feeling adventurous...once the bites are assembled, place them on your grill to give them a grilled look (for about 5 minutes, not on direct fire/heat)!
