Cuban Cuisine: Rice Beans and Plantains
Plantains and Rice served with bean are a stable in the Cuban Cuisine. The food culture of a country or geographic location reflects what are most abundant and easily available. The heart of a culture is centered around the food that is eaten. In Cuba and many other Spanish countries, Rice, Beans and Plantains offer comfort and sustenance as a side dish to many meals.
Lets highlight a few menu items.
Tostones with Mango Chutney Sauce
Pressed Green Plantains
Tostones or what most Jamaicans call ” Pressed Green Plantains” is my favoring way to eat green plantains. I remember my mom use a heavy liquor glass bottle to press the plantains when she make tostones. Today we have access to fancy Green Plantain Smashers . They are inexpensive and sold in many grocery and online stores. It is apparent that most Cuban restaurants serve their tostones with a dipping sauce such as mango chutney. However, i enjoy then with just a sprinkle of salt.
