Stuffed plantain Boats.

There is so much to do with plantains you will be surprised. I love plantains, yellow, gree, black. I do not discriminate when it comes to my plantains.


  • 3 yellow plantains
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 gloves of garlic
  • 3 tomatoes
  • Half of each colour bell peppers
  • Mince or prawns (anyone you have available) 
  • Bullion cubes
  • Scotch bonnet pepper
  • Spring onions
  • Cheddar cheese 
  • Vegetable oil 


  • Peel plantains, heat oil in your pan or fryer and fry plantain as a whole for about 10 minutes till it starts turning golden. Take out of oil and drain excess oil using kitchen paper towel.
  • Onions, garlic, spring onions, tomatoes and scotch bonnet pepper should be chopped, then set aside. If using minced meat, brown and set aside too.
  • Using a medium pan , pour in about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and allow to heat up. Add onions and garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes. Then add your tomatoes and pepper and allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add mince or prawns next with your bullion cube and spring onions, stir together and add salt to taste.
  • Using a knife, make a straight line in the middle of your plantain, scoop stuffing into the middle and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Grease your oven tray and place the plantain on top, stick into the oven(180° preheated) till your cheese is melted. 
  • Take  out of the oven and serve.
