  • 3 - 4 green plantains peeled and cut into thirds
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced or chopped
  • 1 medium white onion or red onion sliced sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ pint of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup of broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup plantain broth or more
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh lime juice or lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 thyme sprigs
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped


  • Carefully peel the plantains, and then dip into a large pot containing water and lightly salted. Before the plantains have finished cooking, remove from heat, and reserve some of the broth for the sauce.
  • In a saucepan, add olive oil, garlic, and plantain pieces. Let pan roast while continuously turning for about 3 - 5 minutes. Add the onion, paprika, salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes while stirring under low to medium heat. Add tomatoes, and broccoli florets and stir to mix. Add lemon juice and gradually add the plantain broth. Add parsley and thyme sprigs, and bring to a boil, and cook on low for 3 - 5. Add more broth and season to taste if necessary.
  • Remove from heat and drizzle more olive oil if prepared. Topped with chopped parsley if preferred.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Use green plantains. Any other green plantains are good to use, but the cooking time may be slightly different—the key to successfully make this dish is cooking the plantains pieces halfway.
  • Do not overcook the plantains when you have to boil them first.
  • Add other types of fresh herbs such as scallions, rosemary, and tarragon.
  • Add other types of dried seasoning and spices, such as any of the Noubess hot sauces, seasoning, and spices.
