This is a delicious recipe to replace bread buns or just on it's own as a dessert. So good!! The sweetness of the plantain offsets the saltiness of the burger pattie. I served with Dr. Praeger's kale burger, romaine & vegan chipotle mayo or aioli (raw version, regular version).
Plantain Burger Buns
1 large very ripe plantain
1-2 Tbls Coconut oil for frying
Cut the plantain into four equal parts.
Fry on a medium heat, turning frequently until the plantains are browned/blackened on all sides and looking soft.
Remove from heat and place on a paper towel to cool slightly.
Take one piece and stand it upright on a plate (I found using paper towels on either side helped it from slipping.
Place another plate on top and push down slowly, holding the plantain straight with your fingers if necessary.
You should end up with flat plantain patties like this.
Put back into the pan and brown well on both sides.
Allow to cool on some paper towels before eating.
Mine weren't really firm enough to eat hamburger style so I used a knife and fork but was amazing!
