    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    I first had plantains when I moved to the UK and to an area that has a large Caribbean and Nigerian population. They are yummy and sort of like a banana but not exactly as they need to be cooked. This is a really easy way of trying out plantains without being afraid of what to do with them. You don't really need the cooking spray but it wouldn't let me post a recipe with just one ingredient.

      Very easy way to prepare plantains. WARNING!! POKE HOLES IN THE PLANTAINS! Similar to a baking potato, they can explode if you don't poke some holes in the skin. Lesson learned the hard way... :-0 Tastes great though especially if you add butter and brown sugar although butter and a sprinkle of salt is good too.

      I actually dont want to give a star review for this either. i went to the store and got a couple plantains. i've never tried them before so i wanted to try this recipe cause its so simple!! but when i made them they were really bad.... turns out my mom told me my plantains weren't ripe yet! they were still green and i just didnt even take that into account before making them!!! so i totally messed up my plantains and didnt really get to try them out the way they are supposed 2 be! but this is a very very simple method and i'm sure they taste great when they are ripe!!! :P made for zwt4
