Crispy Plantain Bowl
with Mint Mojo Rice and Red Beans
Plantains are a major food staple in West and Central Africa and the Caribbean Islands. These banana look-alikes are best served extra ripe, and are perfect for pan-frying because they have just enough sugar to caramelize. Mojo is a sauce made with garlic and citrus, and this version blends fresh parsley and mint with tangy capers, lemon, and garlic.
