When you're 99% sure setting water to boil means forgetting about the water you just set to boil, whadya do?
You steam something!
A steamer basket not only protects your food from the scalding heat of the bottom of the pot once all the water has *accidentally* boiled away, but it also makes for amazing plantain-based breakfasts.
I know fried plantains are all the rage in Paleo-ville, but I actually prefer steamed plantains. They have this gooey, sticky sweetness that tastes almost…naughty. And since I get my fill of the Maillard Reaction with every other thing I ever cook, I figure: why not mix it up?
This breakfast was one for the history books. Simply combine chopped pork shoulder (I made Nom Nom Paleo's Kalua Pig) with steamed plantains. Drizzle coconut oil over the top, and add a dash of cinnamon if you like.
For your second serving, be a super-genius and add coconut flakes.
Best enjoyed while listening to this.
A yummy meal idea from me to you. (Well, from Nom Nom Paleo to me to you.)
