  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 red onion
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Peel and chop green plantains into small chunks.
  • Add to salted boiling water, and cook for 20 minutes, or until plantains are fork tender.
  • Drain, but reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

Seasoned Red Onions:

  • Slice half of a red onion into strips.

  • Add 1 tbsp. white vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
