Nothing too fancy schmancy. Seriously, the patio is kind of in the parking lot and it is on a busy street. We don't care - we were there for the grub. See what's on the front of Andrew Henry's plate down there. It kind of looks like a potato pancake. It isn't. No my friend, it is not. It is a fried plantain and I'm here to tell you......they rock.
They inspired what I cooked for brunch at my house the following Sunday. Won't you pull up a chair and join us?
First, peel and chop up a yam (trust me), then steam them...(see that blur in the middle - it's steam)
While they're steaming, chop up some onions and bell peppers like this...
When they finish up they look like this...
Now for the inspiration. I had no idea how to do those plantains. I peeled them, sliced them down the center and put them in a frying pan with a touch of olive oil.
Don't forget the secret sauce. Back in February, when I told you we put it on everything, I wasn't kidding. It just, ahhhh, it just............you know...............makes it.
Thanks for joining us for a gluten-free brunch at Pagoda - come back anytime!
