Felix (Simply Trini Cooking)
four green or half ripe plantains
peeled and sliced ½ inch thick *
fine leaf thyme
+ 2 tbsp olive oil
crisp turkey bacon
oil for frying
* The choice of plantains depends on your taste. Choose wisely.
Peel plantains and cut into ¼ ” – ½ ” rounds.
Fry plantains in oil until golden. Drain on paper towels.
Fry turkey bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
Mash the seasonings then add the fried bacon. Mash until smooth.
Add the plantain a little at a time and mash until smooth.
Add spoonfuls of olive oil as you progress until all is used up.
Note: In my case I had to mash separately in two batches.
Mash until smooth. Adjust salt to taste.
Form into balls or whatever form desired before serving.
Alternatively you can use a food processor instead of the traditional mortar and pestle.
