    These chips are low in fat and a healthy alternative to the everyday potato crisp. Thinly sliced plaintain is tossed with salt and microwaved until crisp. They are delicious, crunchy and taste just like the store-bought variety, only without the greasiness. The beauty of making your own chips is that you can control how much salt/seasonings you wish to add.

    Popular in many Latin American countries, fried green plantains make an utterly delicious side dish or snack. Known by many names, such as patacones or tostones, green plantains are sliced and fried till golden, for a crispy outside and tender interior.

    Plantains can only be eaten cooked. Fried plantains are a traditional treat in Latin America and many other parts of the world. Overly ripe plantains work best for this recipe. If you want a savoury experience, serve these with salt. If you want something sweet, serve with sugar and cinnamon.

    This is a very easy and warming stew that is perfect for the slow cooker. Easily tweaked according to your own taste and preferences. You can omit the salmon and have it as a vegetarian meal and adjust the amount of pepper depending on how hot you like it. I put this on in the morning before leaving for work and come home 9 hours later to a yummy dish! Serve with crusty bread or Jamaican sweet bread for extra authenticity.

    This delicious sandwich will beat most sandwiches in flavour and texture. The filling consists of fried plaintain, avocados, portabello mushrooms and wild rocket. It's absolutely delicious!
