so, i was out at the supermarket the other day and came across some plantains on offer. i've never really considered them before, so i thought why not? and bought a few. i made some oven baked tostones (didn't like the idea of deep-frying...) and they were lovely, not sweet at all really, and with a bready texture.
i don't often paleo-fy foods, very much a fan of meat/fish and 2 veg. but, i started to think that these plantains may well lend themselves nicely to a pseudo-pizza/pie crust.
now, im no expert in the kitchen so i was wondering if anyone had experience cooking with plantains/had a recipe for a plantain pizza crust - so far i've found nothing helpful out there on the interweb.
perhaps pureeing the plantain (yellow or green?) (with an egg?) first and then put in a shallow baking tray before baking to form a crust. then add toppings and pop back in oven?
what are the thoughts of any paleo-bakers out there? i'd be interested to hear your recommendations!
thanks ! ps i would experiment myself, but currently strapped for time!
