Food Facts
Plantains tend to be firmer and lower in sugar than regular bananas. A staple food in the tropical regions of the world, the firmer unripe plantains have a neutral flavor and texture similar to that of potatoes, making them suitable for steaming, broiling or frying. The sweeter flavor of ripe plantains makes them perfect for snacking.
Tip 4
Substitute
Prepare using KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.
