Sweet Plantain and Shrimp Stew

Name one food you can't live without !?

Plantain, Plantin, Plantanos….whatever you call them; they are a great thing and one food that I can’t live without.

For a long time I thought plantains were a starchy vegetables. However,I recently learned that they are a fruit; sometimes called a cooking banana. Plantain is a staple among many Western African diets, and South American cuisines. If you are interested in cooking with more sweet plantains, try out this easy to make recipe!
