By: Annie

Mofongo is a dish that comes from Puerto Rico. It is a mixture of fried plantains, minced garlic and spices. This dish has a unique and tasty taste. Monfongo is traditionally rich in pork fat and garnished with pork cracker. In this vegetarian version, it is served on purple rice with barbecue-style jackfruit.

Note: For this recipe, you need a mortar and pestle (a puree press is not enough for green plantains) and also a small measuring cup or ramekin

  • 2 large green plantains
  • Frying oil - coconut, avocado, sunflower oil or canola
  • Olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped (more to the taste if you wish)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Spices - I've used ground chipotle - Feel free to experiment with what you have in your spice cabinet - cayenne, smoked paprika, cumin etc.
  • Meat or your favorite meat alternative
  • Rice
  1. Prepare your 'meat' item in advance
  2. Prepare the rice
  3. Heat the cooking oil over medium heat
  4. Peel and cut bananas in circles
  5. Fry plantains until golden and tender with fork ~ 15 minutes
  6. Take them out of the oil and place them on absorbent paper
  7. Place the plantain pieces in your mortar and pestle, add the garlic, olive oil and spices and crush until smooth. The result is a smooth, creamy but not too greasy texture
  8. Fill the ramekin or measuring cup with the plantain mixture
  9. Put the rice on a plate, spill the mofongo, add your "meat" and garnish with your favorite herbs
