Ingredients
If you’re getting tired of potatoes and/or sweet potatoes, I think you should try to source some green plantains. Not all grocery stores carry them, but if they do, they’ll be around the mangoes, jicama, guava, and other tropical produce. Plantains are almost as cheap as bananas. They’re mostly starch and contain almost the same number of carbs as sweet potatoes. Since they have such a neutral flavor, they can be used, practically interchangeably, like potatoes. When looking for green plantains, don’t think that buying yellow or brown ones will yield the same result, as those are the extremely sweet and sugary ones.
