Plantain and Cornmeal Patties

Updated: Apr 11, 2020

Plantains are a Caribbean staple. Fried, boiled, baked when ripe or green it is good mood food most definitely. I love my plantains it's a given and I'm always looking for ways to create meals centered around this gorgeous food. With a crispy bread crumb outer coating and a sweet and savory inside this pattie can be used as bread substitute in a sandwich or just simply a main part of any meal. Here's my recipe.


4 ripe firm plantains

1/2 cup fine cornmeal

1/2 cup hot water

1/4 oil

1tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs

Pinch Paprika

Method ●Cut each end off of the plantains cut in halves and place in a pot of boiling water for 15mins or until soft ●When plantains are soft remove from water and cool. When cool add peel and slice and add to a bowl. ●Add all the other ingredients except the breadcrumbs and mash plantains till everything is properly incorporated. ●Roll dough into balls approximately 15 balls and flatten using your palms. Dip patties in breadcrumbs and place on a greased sheet to bake. ●Place patties in the oven at 240 degrees and bake for approximately 15 minutes. (Do not over bake it will make patties hard) ●Remove from oven and Serve with desire topping hot. I served with Artesian Lettuce Saltfish buljol (link here https://www.terisfoodtherapy.com/terisfoodtherapy/salt-fish-buljol ) . Thanks for joining me in this session of Food Therapy. See you soon ♥️
