This is a vegan recipe meaning no meat, chicken or fish. I occasionally eat fish but for the most part, this is how I eat. I find it filling and it works for me. Modify as you wish, substitute plantain with potatoes or rice and enjoy!
You will need frozen mixed bell peppers and onion, fresh portabella mushroom, frozen asparagus, frozen kale and…
Plantain. Green or half-riped for sweetness. Peel, cut in halves.
Bring water to a boil.
Add plantain and cover.
Add 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil to a saucepan on medium to high heat.
Add frozen bell peppers and stir, season to taste.
It should look like this after 2-3minutes on high heat
Slice mushroom just like this or anyway you like
Add to pan and stir
After 3 minutes, add frozen kale and stir then
Add frozen asparagus, stir and cover
After 10 minutes, it is ready. Don’t overcook to retain nutrients.
At this point, about 20-25 minutes later, your plantain should be soft when tested with a fork. It is ready. Drain and serve.
Here is the finished meal. Nutritious and low carb. This is a great recipe for meatless days. As always, thanks for checking out my blog.
Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated for later.
