Very interesting........I love hearing about different food/dishes cooked in other countries. I love to cook and love trying new things that are not common for us here in the states. Just not sure I could eat plantains with fish :hehe:. They served plantains often when i visited the DR, I just never tried them. Now I wished I had...gymrat no it doesn't , let's say it taste like father banana(mature banana and firmer) without the sugary taste of banana lol. The ripe one though taste a lil like it if you eat it raw. The unripe version is known to be really healthy and packed with iron,I know some diabetic people who eat it regularly on doctors order. Also its adviceable to cook it with the back(peel) cos its medicinal.
LOL, now I just have to find them to cook them!! Ya, I hate popping grease, it hurts and it makes a MESS!! But I will try them if I can find them here.
that's interesting because Goya sazon and sophrito is usually used by Puerto Ricans/Dominicans to make their rice I didn't know Africans use it. thanks for sharing Saucey!Heat a lil olive oil in sauce pan add some chopped onions (purple ones) stir for 3 minutes. Then add 1 cup of long grain rice, Goya sazon, sophrito, ground turmeric and cook for about 2 minutes. Then add chicken broth or water whichever u prefer but personally I use chicken broth for added flavor, bring to boil cover. Simer until rice is nice and fluffy 1f60b
