In parts of Latin America and in most of the Caribbean Islands, plantains are a staple of our daily diet.
In this recipe, the ripe plantain serves as a binding agent to the lentils eliminating any type of flours. The lentils, eggs and the cheese add protein and bring a savory taste to the dish.
Serve the bites as an accompaniment to your main dish, or like we do it at home, for breakfast with a friend egg, “a caballo,” or on horseback.
