I forgot how much I enjoyed plantains. Growing up I was scarred for life as I ate one raw. I’ve just recently started to enjoy them again, especially when fried and eaten alongside something really meaty and substantial, like shredded pork or chorizo and beans.
I found an easy and tasty wait to prepare plantains in the May 09 issue of Food and Wine. Sooo easy! And plantains are sooo cheap. At my local supermarket they are like 3 for a dollar sometimes.

And here are some pictures from my Tostone making:
