Plantain is Versatile.
Growing up in Nigeria, plantain was a huge part of my life; we had plantain trees in the compound and on the farm. My mother would use it in different ways, such as roasting, boiling, frying, or making it into porridge (the same way as sweet potato porridge.) Today I will be spinning around one of my mother’s (plantain) recipes to make this highly requested plantain stuffing.Whether you prefer to eat plantains ripe or unripe, they always make one of the most delicious recipes.

Living in America has afforded me the opportunity of adding yet another tradition to the ones I had growing up in Nigeria. Every single year my family and I look forward to Thanksgiving – an American tradition celebrated every last Thursday of November. One of the unique thanksgiving dishes is “stuffing.” Usually, stuffing is made from bread or cornbread, but I decided to make my family’s stuffing from plantains; semi-ripe plantains. Well, guess what? It worked. YIPPEE!!!
Cheers to this deliciously yummy plantain stuffing, if you are excited about this new tradition, keep reading for the exact recipe.
Thanksgiving Plantain Stuffing.
With few ingredients, be ready to wow your family and friends with this incredible recipe: some semi-ripe plantains, using very ripe plantains will make these very sweet, that’s not necessarily the goal. Then coconut milk (as my choice of liquid), ground turkey, usually sausages are added to stuffing, but I subbed that for ground turkey. Eggs as well as other spices… This side dish is one for the books.
Well, enough said, let’s make this dish.
