step 2
In the meantime, boil the Plantains (5) in abundant water for 20 minutes or until a knife goes in without resistance. When cooked, remove from the water and set aside to cool down. Peel the plantain and with a knife slice in the middle to open a pocket. Try not to go all the way through to the other side to avoid the vegetables coming out from underneath.
