Light Breakfast Recipe – Plantain Toasties and Scrambled Eggs

(Funke Koleosho’s POV) – I was in the mood for some toast, and as I prepared a couple of slices of toasted bread, my eyes caught sight of the plantains I had in my pantry. That’s when inspiration struck me—toasted plantains!

Traditionally, plantains are fried, boiled, roasted, or cooked with other ingredients. However, I wanted to explore a different method to enjoy this healthy, slow-release energy source. After all, the #NewNigerianCuisine movement encourages experimentation with ingredients and cooking techniques. So, how did it turn out?

The verdict and observations? Toasting plantains in a toaster is a unique way to cook them, quite similar to roasting or baking. The resulting dish possesses a distinct taste that can only be described as a delightful blend between the flavors of fried plantains (dodo) and roasted plantains (booli).

Toasting plantains is a simple and incredibly fast cooking method. It’s hassle-free—all you need to do is slice the plantain as thinly as possible and place it in the toaster until it’s well cooked. The thickness of the slices and the temperature/time setting of the toaster play crucial roles in ensuring that the plantains cook through.

By toasting plantains, you instantly expand your breakfast options. Pairing them with scrambled eggs for breakfast or as a light meal creates a truly delicious and balanced dish in terms of health. The eggs provide protein, while the plantains offer a slow release of energy. So, instead of frying plantains, you can toast them for a healthier twist.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Just ripe plantains (avoid using overripe ones)
  • Some salt
  • Some butter

Here’s what to do:

  1. Peel the plantains and slice them thinly, similar to the thickness of sliced bread. The thinner the slices, the faster they will cook.
  2. Optionally, rub the plantains with a pinch of salt and a small amount of butter.
  3. Place the slices into a toaster and toast them until the plantains are cooked through. Depending on the thickness of the slices and your desired level of toasting, you may need to press down the toaster’s spring a couple of times. The cooking time will vary accordingly.
  4. Serve the toasted plantains with scrambled eggs for a delightful meal.

Toasting plantains not only adds variety to your breakfast routine but also offers a delicious and nutritious option. Enjoy the delightful combination of flavors and the convenience of this quick cooking method.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
