Ingredients

- 1 plantain

Plantain
- cut into three small pieces (with the skin still on) and boil for 20 minutes.

Spinach

- add the mackerel
- allow to simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.

This looks yummy!! I'll definitely try it out sometime (but with roast plantain as I'm not a big fan of boiled)

Yes please try it out and let me know how it turns out :)

I love roast plantain but I was so hungry and that would have taken ages to cook.

if you want to simulate roast plantain quicker pop (cut off ends but leave in the skin) it in the microwave for 3-5mins depending on the heat level...
