- 2 medium plantains
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 minced garlic clove
Similar to mashed potatoes, this dish is best served immediately. I kept up the Cuban theme with Gardein chicken and black beans seasoned with adobo seasoning, a flavorful blend of salt, garlic, oregano, bay, and turmeric.

A nicely different side dish that could easily become part of your regular rotation, since it's quick and easy, and good but not fancy. This was the first time I've had plantains that weren't sweet, and the dish tasted like starchier bananas, with an almost vinegary tang on the tongue. The garlic was a nice touch.
