We tried plantains for the first time. They accompanied the Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas we had for dinner. They were different, but good. I think we expected them to be sweeter than they were. Regardless, we found a carb source we can add to our menu, to support muscle growth, which is good!
Melt 1 Tbs ghee in a pan. Slice one plantain into pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and almond slivers, cover and fry on medium heat until done.
I imagine raisins, vanilla, coconut and coconut milk could be added to make for a dessert like skillet.
This was a dessert following a special dinner made for my husband, and he really liked it. Don't worry, it is Whole 30 and flavorful.
In a pan melt 1 Tbs ghee. Quarter one pear and add, flesh down, to pan. Set to medium, cover and allow to fry for about 5 minutes. Flip to skin side (should have a bit of browning), and sprinkle desired amount of pecans on top. Then add cinnamon and drizzle 2 Tbs coconut milk on top. Cover, remove from heat, serve after allowing to sit for 10 - 15 minutes.
Make sure to serve with spoons, you'll want all the goodies in every bite!
