Caribbean-Inspired Plantain Breakfast


For this breakfast, make sure you choose a plantain that is nice and ripe so it can be mashed. This breakfast bowl makes a great filling for a breakfast burrito or a collard green wrap.

Ingredients (serves 1-2)

  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ripe medium plantain
  • 2 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1/2 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Hot sauce

1. Chop up onion and garlic. Heat up olive oil in a medium pan on medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.

2. Slice up plantain and mash with a fork. Add to pan with onion and garlic, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

3. While plantain mixture is cooking, crack eggs into a bowl and scramble with a fork until frothy. Add egg mixture to plantains along with beans. Scramble and cook until eggs are solid, about 2 minutes.

4. Add mixture to a bowl and top with sliced avocado. Finish off with hot sauce and serve warm.
