Fried Sweet Plantains (maduros)

By: Rebecca Pytell from Strength and Sunshine
Fried Sweet Plantains (maduros)
Fried Sweet Plantains maduros

"Fried Sweet Plantains, known as Maduros are ripe plantains, sliced, and fried to crisp and custardy, caramelized perfection! This healthier pan-fried recipe is naturally sweet, gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and allergy-free! Maduros are a perfect side dish, sweet appetizer, or snack! Soft and creamy, they're ready for the table in 10 minutes! Maduros or "plátanos maduros" are simply sweet ripe plantains! As a plantain ripens, the starch it contains gets converted into sugar, making ripe plantains much softer and sweeter than unripe green plantains. Maduros are easier to peel and act more like "dessert bananas" (the bananas you're used to eating). However, they are still more starchy and less sweet but become sweeter as the outer peel blackens. Maduros can be fried, baked, grilled, or boiled. When fried, the natural sugars beautifully caramelize, turning them golden-brown and transforming the interior of the plantain soft and custardy."
