Grilled Plantain spears with crushed peanuts | Boli Bopa

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 bitΒ about this popular west African oil)…

Sprinkle with salt and whatever spices you like (think hot, like cayenne… or mild, like paprika)…

Grill until tender and charred, but not mushy. Slice and serve…

… preferably with crushed peanuts and a sprinkling of extra spices, as desired. This would also be great with minced chili peppers, likeΒ jalapeno.

That’s it! A quick and relatively fuss-free taste of Nigeria.

  1. Start with your budget – how much can you afford to spend, and stick to it
    strictly. There are some cases where a skip bin supplier will sort through all their loads
    and in such cases they are often able to offer flat prices no mater
    what the load is made of. A survey indicates that it may add a third to the
    price of a property.
