Avocado and roasted plantains are usually served together in Cameroon and eaten at the roadside for a fast lunch especially by people who struggle to earn a living like truc pushers, “buy-am, sell-ams” etc. aka. huzzlers. During the festive period, I wanted to create a dish that would impress my visitors while sticking to foods that they know as well as sticking to flavors they are familiar with. So I put together this avocado-stuffed plantain dish.
What makes this dish particular are the shells made from plantain using a citrus press or any small bowl-like utensil or even your fingers. The plantain shells serve as a “bowl” for the avocado. Also it is a two-ingredient dish that can be made in a breeze.
In this recipe, I deep fried the plantain because it was for a special occasion. Remember our 80 -20 rule? It say eat healthy 80% of the time and 20% of the time, cook and eat the way you love best. This will keep you from overindulging if you deprive yourself of your favorite dishes cooked in your favorite way.
I am quite certain this is a recipe you would love, so try it out and let me know how it goes in the comment area below.
