Plantain Fries. YES!!!
I’m addicted to plantains. And ghee. And plantains and ghee together. Definitely together.
There is a greek restaurant that I used to frequent prior to being diagnosed with Celiac. They serve french fries that are covered in garlic and feta cheese. The fries were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. These plantain fries remind me of my restaurant favorite, but the butteriness of the ghee just takes them to the next level. If you can do dairy, load them up with some feta!
If you’ve never used ghee before, it’s worth checking out. It’s creeping up on my list past the king of fats – lard. Ghee is butter that has been cooked down until the water evaporates and the dairy solids can be strained. It’s straight up butterfat. Butter, I mean better yet, it has a really high smoke point so it can be used for all types of cooking and frying. It’s also great for people with dairy allergies since the dairy proteins have been removed. You can make it yourself with grass fed butter, buy it pre-made online, or at a health food store. I’m pretty lazy, so I buy it. Leaves me more time to eat it.
