I am assuming that is what Drake really wanted to say as he whispered sweet nothings in Rih-Rih’s ear as they ummm, worked. Luckily plantain does have a twin. Sorta. There is fried ripe sweet plantain known as Maduro and fried green plantain known as Tostones. These names are primarily used in Latino communities. *Note* Many Caribbean islands and African nations only eat the former and any reference to plantain is automatically assumed to be the former. That means that is clearly the winner right? I’m just saying… If you have the opportunity to consume both you will instantly understand why this is a great debate. Whether you are #TeamMaduros or #TeamTostones here are 11 recipes you can use for your plantains.
