Creamy Plantain Stew [Vegan, Gluten-Free]







  • 3 cooking plantains
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 3/4 cups of coconut milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander - washed and chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of oil


  1. Chop the plantains into thick sticks. Chop the tomatoes and onion into little cubes and the pepper into strips (I did not use it because I forgot to buy them, but I really recommend it!).
  2. In a pan, heat the oil, the onion and a little bit of salt. Cook until tender and add the tomatoes. Let them start melting and add the pepper. Cook for a few minutes.
  3. Add the plantains, the palm oil and the coconut milk. After a few minutes, the plantain will start getting softer. Turn the heat off and serve immediately. Sprinkle some coriander on top and serve with rice and yucca flour. Great stuff!
