Plantain Industry Growth

How could it not Grow? Platanos (plantains) are so delicious and can be served for breakfast lunch and dinner. You can slice, dice, mash and even cook it whole. They can be cooked in many different ways. You can boil, fry, bake, grill or even just throw it in the microwave like my mom. Sorry for giving up your secret, Mom.

Here's a post i wrote on some tasty steak plantain sandwiches.
















It looks as though the use of platanos in the non-ethnic household is becoming more popular. The amount of searches for plantain recipes are on the rise. See the graph below.












This is a sign of the melting pot actually melting symbolically and literally.

Here's a mangu recipe from a Dominican recipe site.

Here's an article from a food industry site that speaks about the growth of the plantain industry.

So if you haven't tried plantains or if you fear the weird overgrown green bananas you see in the supermarket, give it a chance and do a little research. I guarantee that you will be very satisfied.
