This is so quick, it’s silly. All you need are a few medium-ripe plantains (as pictured), some red palm oil, and a bit of salt & hot pepper.
You can find the red palm oil at your natural grocer or, if you’re lucky enough to have an African market, there.
You brush on the red palm oil (back in the day I wrote a bit about this popular west African oil)…
Grill until tender and charred, but not mushy. Slice and serve…
That’s it! A quick and relatively fuss-free taste of Nigeria.
