These look so tasty!  Tongue But here is my stupid question...I've never had plantains, what do they taste like?  I know, I don't get out much. Because they look similar to bananas I always thought they must taste similar, but I'm guessing that's not true.

I'm not an expert... I'm sure jungrrl can answer this better... but they are not really anywhere as sweet as a banana. They are more starchy and mild like a potato.

Although on the other hand, you can cut up plaintains and "caramelize" them which do in fact make them taste very sweet. And when caramelized plaintains are done right they are GENIUS. Smiley

dulce de guayaba con queso de postre.

Those are my boys FAVORITE! We can't really get them the same here, so he brings back at least one box ever time he comes back from a visit Cheesy

Potaje de frijoles colorados con arroz blanco, masa de puerco frita, tostones, mariquitas o platano maduro frito y chicharrones. Mango o dulce de guayaba con queso de postre.

I would have a lot of trouble translating that since my english sucks sorry

I can try?  Red bean soup with white rice, fried pork chunks (mmmmm), tostones (above), thin plantain chips, fried sweet plantains, and pork rinds. Smiley

Mmm, not only vegan, but gluten-free, too!

Well hey!  Smiley

These look so tasty!  Tongue But here is my stupid question...I've never had plantains, what do they taste like?  I know, I don't get out much. Because they look similar to bananas I always thought they must taste similar, but I'm guessing that's not true.

What they taste like depends on how ripe they are and how you cook them.  You can't eat them raw like a banana, you have to cook them, so that has a big impact.  Like Leah said, there are some that are really sweet. If you have maduros, which are a very RIPE plantains that are sort of sauteed, they do taste sweet and slightly banana-y.  If you have tostones, they are more starchy and with much more density and texture than a banana with maybe only a really slight banana taste.  Or you can have them as plantain chips which are just like..... thinner, much more savory banana chips?  I hope that helped... It's hard to describe a taste!  Embarrassed

Yes! I forgot to translate those Cheesy  They're guava and cheese (like cream cheese) pastries.  My boy goes CRAZY for them. They don't last long in this house. Cheesy
