Recipe Poetry: Platanos Maduros

Two plantains, like love, lie
spooned, pale yellow, ripening.
Peeled and sliced like coins
before they soften and bruise.
Slivers in spoon-sized drops of oil,
glisten, brown as warm earth.

Recipe

plantains
olive oil
sea salt
Adobo seasoning

Peel and slice semi-ripe plantains and lightly brown in a tablespoon of olive oil. For more crisp plantains (patacones), slice and brown in a tablespoon of oil when plantains are still green in color. Season with sea salt and Adobo seasoning (to taste) while plantains are still warm.

    Food for thought. Pleasing to the eye, pleasant to the taste, acceptable to the mind.
