Fried Green Plantains

I tried these for the first time at a Columbian restaurant for lunch. I had never had plantains before and they were quite good and looked really easy to make. The taste is inbetween fried zuchinni and fried potatoes.

You need:

1-2 large green plantains
enough oil for frying
salt, to taste

Peel plantains and slice into 1 inch pieces.
Heal oil in skillet.
Place slices in oil and fry for about 5 min on each side.
Remove from skillet and place on paper towels. Using a plate or skillet mash each plantain slice until half its size.
Place back in skillet and fry about 1 min each side.
Season with salt.

These are good served with salsa and a nice alternative to fries.

Kielbasa and Potatoes

This is a quick dish with few ingredients and a new favorite for us.

1 package kielbasa, cut into 1 inch slices
3-4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1 can green beans
1 can beef broth

In a skillet, brown your kielbasa. Next add potatoes and beef broth. Bring to a boil, cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft. Add green beans last five minutes, to allow to warm through.


Sorry I have not posted in some time. We have been traveling and are in the process of buying our first home, so I have not had much time to blog.
